It’s been a long time that the Israeli Ubuntu LoCo website have no real website. before about a year Dolev Ravid (Shezif), the Israeli LoCo leader had decided to redirect the domain of the LoCo site from the website to the forums, because of the obsolete information it had for a long time.
My thought was that I must rebuild the portal, and so I did.
While searching for the best CMS to use for the new portal, i found Drupal (which ubuntu.com is working on it) and the Project Ubuntu-Drupal, which tried to build a nice LoCo basic site.
From when I’ve joined this project, until today, it changed from side to side, and has nothing with the old version I first used when I’ve started building the portal.
Before few days I’ve finished building the last things in the site, after months I’m working on it. I worked hard to give the site a real “Ubuntuish” feeling, so we would be a good “face” of Ubuntu in our country.
This portal was redirected to our domain, and is available on the address http://ubuntu-il.com. for now it has a Planet, Last messages from the Israeli LoCo forums (in the main page), News, Chat, and many translated pages from ubuntu.com.
