Ori, this is great - keep going.  With the addition of the features you described, I could see this being very useful, especially for smaller occupations.  Let us know when it's stable and we'll get folks to take a look at it.

I know that there are a bunch of python fans on this list who talk about Django.  Hopefully they'll reach out to you.

Hey guys,

I don't suppose I could persuade you to develop in Python? For the past few days I've been working on building a gift / skill exchange site for OWS. I built an app (called Marcel) which is close to being ready for deployment. You can demo it here: http://marcel.ep.io/. The code is up on GitHub at https://github.com/atdt/marcel.

I'm sorry to leap out of the woodwork with this. I have a newborn baby and I've been sick for the past few days, so I simply haven't been able to keep up with meetings and emails. I don't mean to step on anybody's toes. I'd be happy to put this up as temporary solution and then point it to whatever Drupal-based product you come up with. If people think this could be a viable platform, I'll deploy an instance with OWS branding and better explanatory texts.

I plan to add search, editing posts, and more fluid login/logout -- it shouldn't take more than a day or two. I'd also like to add RSS/Atom feeds.

The code is poorly documented right now but it's pretty clean, and I'll be adding comments and documentation tomorrow. It's built on top of Flask, which is very simple to develop on. I would really love to continue working on it, but I don't want to sabotage some kind of collective undertaking. It really does sound like something like this is needed urgently, though.

Thoughts?

Best, Ori

All,

Re: the meeting tomorrow- it's cancelled!  The necessary conversations to get started occurred today, so we will be able to get started right away.  Dana will be setting up the git hub and redmine PM account coordinating the work moving forward, in close alignment with myself... She will be reaching out to the team I outlined at the beginning of this string.  Please anybody else who wants to pitch in, let us know...

Also, Keka, are you still on board for the visual design? - I have also copied the design WG back on this list to see if there are more people interested in making the site super slick!!

peace,

Evan

Dave, the author of that blog is a friend of mine, a number of people in FLO Solutions group member projects are on the shareable list and the communityforge developer is on our team. ;)

I'm not able to contribute to the project at all (doing other ows stuff with drupal) but wanted to make sure that you were aware of all the tools on these lists:


Particularly http://communityforge.net/ which purports to be a LETS system implemented in Drupal.

i can't offer actual work time (too many other #ows obligations, to say
nothing of client work), but if you folks haven't already gone all the
way through planning & speccing the drupal internals, i can definitely
help at that level.

cheers
