This page is a good example of need for using better wiki formating: don't use tabs, you can't usually type them and they are unnecessary: * Level 1 ** Level 2 translates to: * Level 1 * Level 2 I didn't go through and change all of that, maybe I would if I rigged up some sort of

Here is my vision for a distributed media module which I will not have time to work on so its only a vision. Start with an RSS schema that has tags for different sources and different formats of a single type of media. This schema can also do some tagging. Make a node type that lets users upload

Right now we are kinda opaque. People have to sign up to see whats going on. I can do whatever with the Drupal permissions or even use a second instance of Drupal for our internal communicaion. Are we okay with letting our lurkers be anonymous? I plan on letting them have privileges to view

[hackers] make_block.module

After some talking with Moshe, sidebar.module has become a much simpler make_block.module. The new module will fit into Drupal much better. The design doc is at: http://www.hack4dean.org/phpwiki/index.php?make_block This page is a bit sparse on implementation details and heavy on design issues

[hackers] CVS modules and server

Right now we have a CVS module for every module we are doing a lot of work on and some defunct modules. At some point we should move to having an entire Drupal distribution which will become our kit in CVS. SourceForge's CVS servers are quite busy and we may want to consider hosting this

From what I have seen none of the three themes properly include the footer. This is necessary for sites which would like to use a nonstandard footer (of course the defualt ones will have a creative commons logo and a disclaimer). For example the SourceFogre sandbox includes a SourceForge icon
