Questions (for Matthias and/or Helmut)

  • setup config files:
    • database.yml
    • mail.yml
    • secrets.yml
    • sidekiq.yml
  • gem install bundler
  • import DB dump (lookup for appropriate GIST/snippet TODO)
  • check if assets are correctly linked (i.e. in the correct folder, is this sufficient?)
