Many of you may know we are close to completion of our Roots Project beta site. This Drupal site will provide a social networking and organizing infrastructure for progressives all over the country. Whether people want to create groups based on their local communities, based on issues of interest or even based on lifestyle interests and hobbies, our site will provide the infrastructure for common people to gather together for the common good. The site will be a place to create tools and best practices designed by locals for others to copy and adapt to their own circumstances all across the country. The focus of the site is to connect people, making the distinction between the grassroots and the neetroots ultimately obsolete.
To get the site from its current 0.8 state to 1.0 during the next month, we need additional site development help. Lambert from Correntewire, our highly talented and experienced lead developer, sent me the following information about who and what we need. Please email me at pachacutec01 at gmail dot com if you think you can help. Let me know what your programming experience has been and please provide me any references you may have that give me confidence you share our progressive values. Those interested in helping complete what will be, I think, an historic project must be available for focused work right away, during this month of August. Thanks!
Here's what we need:
