As a result of the recent TechMeet meeting that happened last Sunday, it
has been decided to revive the Imc-CMS discussion and to try and pick a
CMS to focus indymedia developer attention to.
I volunteered to try and coordinate it with whoever else wants to help.
They are trying to have this info ready by December 1st.
The other teams are the IndyPlone and a lot of IMCistas trying to
develop a code-base from scratch with CakePHP.
* work on an environment they assigment for and investigate it
* collect the pros and cons
* perform some customizations (according to indymedia needs)
* present it to the rest in 1 month
This is what we need to work on.
Here are responses that people made.

http://docs.indymedia.org/view/Local/ImcBoston - has a section about
moving over from Dada to Drupal
is a post about Dada-Drupal but most of the links are down and the IMC
is still on Dada from what I can tell. I e-mailed the author to see if
they had usable code.
Development will be coordinated via e-mail on
imc-cms at lists.indymedia.org and #cms but I think that a repository for
Drupal specific docs and analysis would be useful. I will also post this
to the Indymedia group on http://groups.drupal.org.
The next step is setting up a meeting on IRC for everyone interested.
I'm on EST - in the US, and I know that Ekes is in CET in Europe and I
remember their being quite a few devs in Australia years ago when I was
trying to organize this.
Who wants to help with Team Drupal ?
