ODMA.info Is Being Repaved.

Migration to a new server introduced a number of problems that need to be repaired.  Older pages also need to be modified and reorganized for consistency across the entire ODMA site.  While the site is being repaved to accomplish both kinds of improvements, you may notice discrepancies and problems with links to site content.

Check the Site Repaving Project pages for additional details on the known defects and the approach to correction and upgrade.  Contact the ODMA Technical Coordinator with questions and to report any defects that you notice.


You're at the Front Porch Construction-Structure of the ODMA site.  The front porch provides overall entrance material.  It is the root of the content of the site and the anchor of the construction structure on which the content is maintained.

All ODMA content is reachable from this front porch (i.e., by browser entry and navigation at the front porch or by use of a URL that specifies a path into the site). 

The construction structure is the scaffolding of connected folders that serves as the framework for content development and maintenance.  The construction structure is carried in index.htm pages like this one.  The front porch (the root) and each subfolder has an index.htm page for that purpose.  During early stages of site development, navigation to content might be primarily via the construction structure.  As more-polished organizations are developed, they will be grafted over the construction structure.  The scaffolding is never removed, it merely fades into the background.

This web page is part of the engineering, construction-management, maintenance, and infrastructure of the ODMA site.  You are welcome to explore this and other construction-structure pages.   You'll need your hard hat and safety shoes.

When ODMA.info is published on a web site or mirrored on a CD-ROM or local hard drive, these construction-structure pages provide the basic scaffolding.  That scaffolding supports browser navigation and orientation in the material.  These index pages link the folder structure together and connect to additional construction information and site content as appropriate.

It is a policy for ODMA and other nfoCentrale sites that the only access to content be by navigation of links.  There are no web-site folders for which the content is directly exposed to public access in the manner of a file-system directory.  As part of the construction structure, every folder has an index page, and that page serves to implement this policy as well as establish the site scaffolding.

0.02 2008-04-25-21:45 Update to Construction Structure Page
The page is amended to include the Construction Structure material as well as the earlier placeholder content.
0.01 2008-04-25-21:06 Final Form before Construction Structure
As part of repaving, this index.htm page becomes a standard construction-structure format.  This is the last version of the index.htm prior to that transition.  The function served by this form of index page must now be divided between default.htm and any about (typically, ODMA.htm) page.
0.00 1999-05-07-15:29 Original Index Creation
The original index.htm was set up as a sketch of what is to be provided prior to there being a default.htm page as the home page and front-porch of the site.  This is all that is found on many sections of the site for an indefinite period.
