PBS has updated its Web policies with changes to three areas:
Sites may not assume that their IP addresses will not change. That is, if the IP address changes, the site must still function properly.
Sites should not assume that their domain names are fixed. That is, if the domain name needs to change, the site should still function.
Repeatable Amazon-hosted sites
Site should be "repeatable" on Amazon. That is, PBS should be able to back up the producers application directory and database, create a new machine, and the site should come up without any human intervention. All customizations must be automated using the boot.sh file which is run once upon server provisioning.
