Just a quick note and two questions on themes: 2) Are you (any of you) open to "requests" for themes? Yeah, there's already been a request by someone on this list toalter adc (I think it's called- which I've yet to even look at). I've been dealing with my own theme wish list here.I'm sure there

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

Yes this makes sense to me - but i think they should be authenticated before they can submit things. Comments? -Zack On Thu, 31 Jul 2003, Neil Drumm wrote: 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

Submit things - as in be active in development conversations. This means using the communication tools, posting blog entries, etc. Depending on what we do with the CVS (keep SF or set up out own tree) we can handle code submission authentication in the same way. -Zack On Thu, 31 Jul 2003, CMR

Right, authenticated to submit anything except comments. And different levels of authentication: Anonymous: Read and comment Authenicated: more privileges, but not a lot Developer: All of us, submit just about anything and probably some editing Admin: Admin, editing. -Neil Original

Yes... But you proposed a new descision :) Should we differentiate (through authentication) between non developers who are active in the community - and active developers? I.E. give lurkers less rights than participants? I am leaning yes - but what do you guys think? -Zack On Thu, 31 Jul

Hello all I've been onboard since early on, basically lurking and following the email exchanges. But I'm glad that Josh S. has brought back the idea of non-Drupal modules. I suggested a while back that there be an MT module for bloggers, to put into a sidebar. I think that if we reach out to some

Dave et al -- As I said last night in the chat, I think the modules will be the most heavily used part of this -- already tech-savvy groups will want to hook into aspects, but not all, of this service. In fact, I think introducing the service as module or site will vastly increase the likelihood

I have been busy with other project lately myself and have been hanging back like Dave, but this is something I thought I should really speak up on. I know the idea is to make it easy for people to use the kit and get their sites up and running in no time. I installed a drupal test site a while

Transparency: I vote for letting lurkers be anonymous. Although it does come back to my earlier question: Is there any nice way to make particular posts only readable by a certain set of users. Personally, I would even allow anonymous people to post. If they post anything unappropriate, the

Wiki or Book: I started doing things as books. I haven't played with a wiki module for Drupal. Is there one? I will load it and play with it and provide my comments. I do like the idea of Wiki for quickly changing things and books for something more permanent. I also like the idea of

We can have mailing lists off of deanspace.org. Here is my thinking for the lists: announce: announce from americansfordean.com deanspace: [EMAIL PROTECTED] devel: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Or we can start using the forum.module which was modded to send email. Zack/Josh: I need addresses or whatever to

Q: What would go on the announcments list? I also think a graphics / theming list might be useful (no?). There was also talk of a MetaDean list and a Deanster list. What do you guys think? -Zack On Thu, 31 Jul 2003, Neil Drumm wrote: We can have mailing lists off of deanspace.org. Here is
