I completely understand. You are investing huge efforts. I am watching NEOS for more than 2 years now. And I think you are doing a really great job!!! That is absolutetly unique.
I have my personal projects going on and want to use a next generation CMS for publication. In my eyes there is only one choice: NEOS. So I ask myself: How much effort do I have to invest to get my webpages up and running. I already invested several days to find answers to my questions. Still not answered.
I think, with a few hours invested in refining the NEOS documentation and supporting the installation process, everybody can do it. I am convinced, the impact will be massive.
If the goal of NEOS is to make CMS possible without programming, the entry point is crucial. I think, with 3-10 newcomers + one expert watching their mistakes, this task can easily be achieved - resulting in some extenstions of the documentation. May I apply as one of the newcomers?
Later, while using NEOS, I will have ideas on how to extend my sites with special features and at some point will need experts’ professional support. But if I get stuck in the very beginning, I will have to outsource the whole CMS project right from the start - making NEOS unpredictable from my perspective.
I hope, you can use my frank remarks. If one of the experts is interested, I can share my ideas - perhaps in a separate, personal discussion.
