|What is Scoop|
|Scoop is a "collaborative media application". It falls somewhere between a content management system, a web bulletin board system, and a weblog. Scoop is designed to enable your website to become a community. It empowers your visitors to be the producers of the site, contributing news and discussion, and making sure that the signal remains high. More >>|

|Where can I get Scoop|
|You can download the latest release tarball: scoop_1.1.8.tar.gz|
You can grab the nightly build. Note: This is generated automatically from the current CVS, and may not be reliable! Get that here: scoop-1.1-nightly.tar.gz
The developers strongly recommend CVS as the primary way to obtain Scoop, since releases tend to have pretty long delays between them. If you have CVS installed, do the following:
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@ scoop.versionhost.com:/cvs/scoop login
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@ scoop.versionhost.com:/cvs/scoop co scoop
The above is two commands; each one must be on a single line. When prompted for a password for anonymous, enter 'anonymous' (without the quotes). For more CVS info, "Open Source Development with CVS" is an excellent online reference.
|Where can I get help|
|There are several sources of information and support for Scoop. The first place to look is the scoop-help mailing list. You can browse the archives, or join the list. If you want to post a question, joining the list is strongly recommended. You can also join the #scoop IRC channel on SlashNET.|
For documentation, there is the (largely complete) Scoop administrator's guide. You can also read the current README and INSTALL files, from Scoop WebCVS (username and password are both "anonymous"). The admin guide is also included with Scoop, in the doc/ directory.
If you have new feature ideas or requests, or descriptions of something you're working on for Scoop, this site is the place to submit them. You can also search this site for information. If you want to get your hands dirty, or have any questions about developing for Scoop, there is also the Scoop-dev list. You can browse the archives, or join the list.
Bug reports and patches should be filed on the Scoop Bug Muncher.
If you have any problems with this site or your user account, e-mail the Admin

|Is this project still alive?I have a customer that wants it installed on my server, but after surfing around the site it almost appears the project is abandoned.Is there a walk-thru guide available for installing on Ubuntu?I take it from what what I've read here Scoop basically doesn't work in Windows...am I correct in that? |

I would like a scoop developer, but it's not clear where to post for one?
also, the fact that the latest news (section) is from 2006 is disconcerting. is scoop "over"?

|Looking over this site, its apparant that you're having the same spam woes that I'm having on my scoop site (chinese spammers creating accounts and posting advertisements everywhere).I would request a couple of tools to help combat this problem (delete all posts by a username, blocking by IP, and preventing more than 3 links per post. *heck, why not stop all links?*)Are there other ideas to help stop this?As it is now, I can't hardly keep up with the pace of crap posted on my scoop site. |
