New and fully working version out. Still rather rough around the edges, but a solid
release. Post your observations/complaints as comments on the test page.

Domains are easy to come by. We need to find some servers. Anything supporting PHP and
SQL will do. Hoefully we will find some grassroots organizations with hosts, but we,
as shown by the current state of americansfordean.com, need reliable servers with
bandwidth to survive a campaign.
First, thank you for taking a stab at themes. I hope all is going well for you and
everone else in that area. Please let us know when you have something.
Before anyone goes and buys things there are probably FEC rules. I think I saw
something come over the list saying there was a $250 personal

suspect though if Drupal is GNU GPL and most things are GNU GPL the GNU GPL is
just fine, and we cant change it anyway - because that is what Drupal is.
Amd I wrong?
If we are going to use a p2p app for media distribution we should keep it strictly
server side. Site A posts some media and as soon as sites B, C, and D decide to
publish on their sites the software starts getting a local copy with bittorrent or
whatever. Users of sites will see basic links as
Apparently we are supposed to finish these within a week so I should report our status
and ask for any direction or help.
event.module is working nicely, but still has some rough edges. I am going to clean it
up a bit today and tomorrow.
export.module is working well. It might need some more
I put bluesky, simpledean, and Dean01 in a single tarball and released them on
http://sf.net/projects/dean/. I will install them on http://dean.sf.net/ as soon as
that web server decides to cooperate (probably by later tonight) so you can try them
out for yourself.
Has anyone contacted the
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
From what I know about endorse it is a form you fill out and spam all your friends
with some premade Dean messages. That link looks like something to gather names
(which we can also do, where do we put them?).
The deanvolunteers page is closer to the talent database. How is that part going? We

Download them for yourself:
bluesky - removed screenshots and fixed footer
Dean01 - fixed footer
simpledean - newer version
supersimpledean - new theme
Let me know if you change your theme included
New things are the upcoming events block and the calendar which appears when you click
the header of the small broswe events calendar. I've exhaused my ideas for event

Notes:Added aldon4dean and campaign. Updated bluesky and supersimpledean. Added a
README and CREDITS.
Multiple MySQL DBs would be rather nice. We could easily run multiple insances of
Drupal then (our site, sample site, development site, sandboxes for developers).
Also what will be the file access scheme? Will multiple developers be able to change
files they control around like they can on the
Fixed a couple annoying things: for events to be in the upcoming events block or feed
they had to be promoted and searching events by day searched in the server's timezone,
not yours. If you happen to be upgrading only event.module changed.

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
This page is a bit sparse on implementation details and heavy on design issues
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
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

We can have mailing lists off of deanspace.org. Here is my thinking for the lists:

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
Make a node type that lets users upload
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
* Level 1
* Level 2
I didn't go through and change all of that, maybe I would if I rigged up
some sort of
What I'm doing:
*event, make_block, and export modules (export is done for now)
*maybe a theme
*helping any Iowa or Champaign-Urbana sites get started
