Hi Nick -
Are you working from the code repo on github or FTP-ing changes to  If you're FTPing you should fork the repo on github,
add your changes, and send a pull request back to FLOSolutions.

I missed yesterday's meeting, so I should probably introduce myself to
anyone who doesn't know me yet-
I'm Nick. I've been staying in Zuccotti on-and-off for just over a week.  I
made the status & contact tab plugins for group profiles.
I've been a little busy/inactive for the past few days - it's been hard to
find wi-fi and power around the park.. so I'm back home in NJ to work, and
gather supplies for my next stay.
Today I plan on pushing an update to the tab plugins. Changes:
- When saving changes, it will check to see which field values have been
changed, and will only save those.
- Changing tab data will push an update to the activity feed (ex. "Nick
updated the status for the Internet group").
- Fixed the slug for each tab ("statustab" changes to "status", "contacttab"
changes to "contact")
After this update, I'm going to work on a tiny update that properly links
Twitter usernames listed in the contact tab.

Hi - I'm sending this to everyone who I've spoken to about setting up
the new site.  I'd like to run this email like a Scrum daily
stand-up meeting: we all go around the circle and briefly state what
we're working on (if anything), what our goal is for the day, and what
we lack to accomplish that goal.

I have set up code for on github.  Working on setting up a
local dev site today.  Jessica's Events code is merged into main repo.
 I'm assuming this means the site is "ready" to go.  Jessica and Jake
should check that they have

Need: (from Ron) an sql dump of the database (not direct copy of the
db)  - I posted instructions on basecamp.

Need: (from IT Team (joshua / ted) ) - ability to create some extra
virtual servers on Panix.  WP is a CPU hog and the database,
application, content cache, and datbase should be on separate boxes.

Am I correct that Drew or Jake control DNS for the / domain names - those will need repointing tomorrow night.

Goal: working dev site today, and installation package for other devs
to work locally on code.  working mirror of site on Panix server(s) by
mid-day tomorrow, with fully-updated content ready for a Tuesday night
(if lucky) or Wednesday launch.  I'd like for some ppl from Internet
Group to work with me on this tomorrow, after the general meeting.
