I have not used "Red Dot", but several people in the retail industry
raved about it when I was shopping for a solution.  It was the first
choice of my marketing and public relations team at a former employer,
but I am not sure if they ever implemented it.  Basically, you could
decide at what level you wanted to "declare" a record and set separate
revision control numbers on subsets.  You had to check out a web page
revision in order to change it and it kept both drafts and
final/approved copy.  It came bundled with some work flow tools that
were very impressive.   

Not sure if your project is large enough to warrant that kind of cost,
but for online retailers, it was considered a "must have" for online web
shopping updates.

One of the organizations I work for (a private foundation in Chicago) is
trying to decide whether (and how) to digitally preserve (or "archive")
its web site.  

 

The foundation does not take money or handle financial transactions over
its web site.  The web site contains primarily publications, e.g., news
releases, annual reports, newsletters, and the like.

 

My question is:  What software or procedures do you use to preserve your
organization's web site as it changes over time?  Our web developer has
suggested that we use WGet (a web crawler) to capture our web site as it
appears to the public and then use SubVersion (another software
product-used for version control?) to catalog any aspects of the web
site that have changed.  In this way, we store only the base web site
plus incremental changes, as opposed to storing multiple copies of
portions of the web site that have not changed.

 

Have any of you done (or attempted) anything similar?  If so, I would
love to hear what you did and how it went.  This is fairly new territory
to me, and any words of advice, warning, or encouragement would be most
welcome.

 

Thank you.

 

Sincerely,

 

Christine Martin
