Create a demo instance
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Per discussion on T15003, it might be a good idea to create a demo instance of some type. This would provide users the opportunity to play with Phorge without polluting our upstream instance as much. This is a technique I've seen for many open source projects.

Phorge already has a command line utility to generate demo data: ./bin/lipsum. My thought would be: Let's create a Phorge instance on a separate host. Periodically (every hour?) a cron job that restores a known good database that we've generated dummy data into using the lipsum utility. The logins would be publicly known and posted on the page, so users could log in and try out various features of the software.
