There are a number of weblogs used to help keep track of UIS activity –
The morning report and the work in progress.
Each of these has an RSS feed,
with additional RSS feeds for status information from the production system.
— updated weekly with metadata changes (SIS/FRS dictionary)
— current open/close status
— latest build process errors
In these cases we don’t expect dialog or comments, just providing a method to get status and update information without calling on the phone.
A more “interactive” task would be to place the UIS listserv questions and answers onto the weblog pages.
