Finally we had some time to prepare the new homepage which is now also hosted by the Eclipse Foundation. That also required us to move away from the blog software that we already had on openSCADA, and change it to something new.
So, as a quick start for creating a simple static homepage, we used a combination of EMF and Acceleo for creating some static HTML pages from our custom website model that we defined. There might be lots of other ways, but this one worked too ;-)
On the down side of all this, we lost the ability to have comments for each post in the blog. Since we gathered a lot of spam there as well, this is not so much trouble. Also does the Eclipse SCADA project have its dedicated forum at eclipse.org and its own mailing list. Just see the contacts page of the project information page.
