The front page explains everything. Basically, sign up for a blog (or several), write posts, adjust settings, comment on other people’s blogs, and then send bug reports to lyceum-bugs AT lists DOT ibiblio DOT org.

Congrats! I hope it goes well. I’m looking forward to the release, and I know a lot of people behind the firewall could use it.

I’m curious about architecture. Is Lyceum a fork of WP or a layer on top?

Also, what’s gained by building this as a project separate from WP? Why not just constribute back into the WP codebase?

Lyceum is a branch of WP that is staying parallel with the WP codebase. It makes slight modifications to the schema and extensive modifications to the code in order to support an arbitrary number of blogs using one copy of the code and a static number of tables.

It is a significant divergence from the WP codebase, which is why it is being done as a branch and not just with patch contributions.
