SCG Pier migration

The SCG website is an instance of Pier, a CMS implemented in Squeak Smalltalk. Although it was once cutting edge technology, it is now a piece of legacy software, running on an old Smalltalk image and vm. There is a high risk that after a future operating system upgrade, the vm will no longer work.

This project will assess the feasibility of the automated migration of the SCG Pier installation to a more modern CMS, or possibly to a static web site. The project will entail:

The goal is to arrive at a completely automated migration procedure that can be run at a suitable point in the near future. This project would be most suitable for a Bachelors thesis.
