Now that we're on the new site, people can no longer us the old build system to recreate a copy of the www.mozilla.org site locally for testing. We need to document how people can do this now (or an alternative would be to have a staging server that didn't automatically move changes over to the live site).
Some basic documentation about this has been added to: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mozilla.org/How_to_Work_with_Site#Staging_Site I'll leave this bug open for now since the instructions could be improved a bit to make things clearer.
I'm working on a guide for OS X. Once I'm done with that, I'll do a Window XP guide if I have enough time and patience with Apache + PHP setup on Windows.
https://wiki.mozilla.org/MAC_OSX_Setup I've made a guide for OS X but, maybe I should change the name as the URL implies that it's for MAC OSX Firefox Client or ambiguous. How do I make it show up in https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mozilla.org/Mac_OSX_Setup ? I'm also working on a windows version with Windows 7 and an Ubuntu version after that but, they are slow going because I'm running them virtualized.
Emmanuel, these docs look great. Thanks for working on this. About your question in comment #3, I moved this page to the Mozilla.org section on the wiki and it is now at: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Mozilla.org/MAC_OSX_Stage_Setup The old page redirects automatically so any existing links should continue to work.
Closing old Mozilla.org website bugs due to them not being relevant to the new Python-based Bedrock system. Re-open if this is a critical bug and should be resolved on the new system too.
FTW, the docs for Bedrock appear to be here: http://bedrock.readthedocs.org/en/latest/
Would probably be good to link that page from the wikimo pages...
