Since there have been two requests, I though I would go ahead and submit the
details to the list. I have just gotten DONUT up and working and noticed
one thing that I am going to have to change and that is the use of un
declared variables which requires register_globals to be enabled in your
apache php config. Otherwise it looks really useful and my tech are excited
to see a web based front end. I am using the older version which doesn't
use rails. With that being said, the messages from the Educause Resnet
mailing list is below with links to both the rails and php versions. One
more time, thanks to Ryan Dorman and the folks at Millersville for offering
to share this with us.

A couple months ago I posted about DONUT the "Database for the Organization
of Networks Utilizing web Technology" and mentioned that there would be a
new version forthcoming. Well it is partially completed and I think that
the code I have is all I will get from the developer. So I'm flinging it
out there to the world to play and poke at. It is completely rewritten in
Ruby. I know NOTHING about this code other then having seen a demo of it so
use it at your own risk. It is, as most great software dev projects are,
undocumented and rather untested but supposedly new and improved. It uses
rails and I belvel you need a Ruby gem called login to make it all work.
That being said you can download it at:
The old version (the one in production here) can be found at:
If you have questions send them to me and I'll forward them to the developer
but I wouldn't hold my breath for a response.

I'd like to second that request. If someone could provide more information
about DONUT, I'd love to see it.
