Notes from my discussion with David a while ago:

Following irc discussion, it looks like read-only mode is simply achieved by Apache config:

  • 503 for PUT/POST operations - stops writes
  • 503 for GETs to URIs containing: /edit, /create, /new, /authz -

stops providing forms that lead to a write

  • setenv CKAN_READONLY="Undergoing maintenance 12.00 UTC for one hour"

which can be picked up by CKAN to be displayed as we see fit in the future. Friedrich's current IATI sprint may link into this and grey out edit links etc.
