Merge Toolbox and Lemill.net

Description

The consortium decided that it would be benecifial to not have the Toolbox as a closed environment, but that it would benefit from having outside members. Therefore we should combine the databases of Toolbox and LeMill into one, so we have only one community to build.

Another decision was that "Toolbox" is a poor name and should be changed. A strong candidate for a new name is "LeMill".

All this needs to be discussed in detail and planned properly before implemeting.

Subtasks:

  • make sure that SSO + lemill's open registration don't cause problems (possibly disabling SSO?)
  • merge the databases into one, resolving conflicting ids
  • setup forwarding from the toolbox domain into lemill.net

The name issue is still an open questions, but the WP4 is positive for this.

The idea is that some of the "featured content" from the LeMill.net (when the toolbox content is in there) can be shown in the portal and this is bring people to see the content in there and to participate to the collaborative authoring of them.

  • Milestone changed from 1.9 to 1.10

We decided not to merge the two systems as we release, but do it in about two weeks, after we've warned teachers.
