Can you clarify at all?
I think most of us feel in the dark here.
If a lot of people are working on a lot of things, is anyone coordinating that? We have heard only that things are being worked on, and despite repeated attempts of volunteers reaching out to get involved or offering services (such as WiFi in the park) it seems no help is needed.
If things are being worked on such as a group calendar, why has that not been brought up for collaboration or input on this list? Perhaps someone here on the list has a very good solution ready to drop in place on a WordPress site.
With no technology roadmap, people will keep asking about features, work will be duplicated, and opportunities will be missed.

sentiment that i am deeply uncomfortable about using google groups for
this. riseup, something else - this is a known, defined problem space
with trustworthy solutions, folks.
