Stick with it!?! ActiveFedora and Fedora 6

Avalon Media System, a Samvera application for audio/video content, was originally written using ActiveFedora and Fedora 3 over a decade ago and migrated to Fedora 4 six years ago. Avalon has been mature and stable for years with over 20 installations at different institutions but the time has come to upgrade to Fedora 6 for resilience, performance, and sustainability reasons. While Valkyrie seems a natural choice since it already has support for Fedora 6, the cost of switching is high. This presentation will detail our experiments with getting Avalon to run on Fedora 6 using ActiveFedora along with a discussion of the pros and cons to sticking with ActiveFedora.
