(aka Distributed Multi-flow Publishing System: a proof of concept) Development in the context of the Digital Publishing Toolkit

Online platforms like mediawiki are powerful examples of a sophisticated multi-user publishing platform. However there are certain key limitations to it:

  • Server+SQL database based architecture -- only works online, distribution/syncing is complex
