                       Bricolage Content Management System

                                 Version 1.4.5

Bricolage is a full-featured, enterprise-class content management system. It
offers a browser-based interface for ease-of use, a full-fledged templating
system with complete programming language support for flexibility, and many
other features. It operates in an Apache/mod_perl environment, and uses the
PostgreSQL RDBMS for its repository.

GETTING STARTED

relevant to your operating system, if there is one.

this file will also be available via the Bric::Admin man page.

For copying information, see License. Once Bricolage has been installed, this

KNOWN ISSUES
============

* With Internet Explorer on Mac OS and Mac OS X, and with Netscape Navigator
4.7x on Windows 95, long Bricolage pages may not render completely. The issue
seems to be related to bugs in Internet Explorer on the Mac and Netscape on
Windows 95 (or the Windows 95 network stack), but we've been unable to isolate
the content that triggers it. The workaround is to use different browsers on
those platforms -- Mozilla seems to work great on all platforms. Complete
details are available via the Bugzilla bug report at
http://bugzilla.bricolage.cc/show_bug.cgi?id=190.

* Users who have been given the rights, via membership, to edit groups and/or
users effectively have complete access to the system. This is because they can
add themselves to any group they want, including "Global Admins." Solving this
problem is harder than it looks, due to the Bricolage permissions architecture
design. The solution is to give only those you trust to have "Global Admin"
access permission to edit users and/or groups. Complete details are available
via the Bugzilla bug report at http://bugzilla.bricolage.cc/show_bug.cgi?id=93.

Enjoy!
