How’s the title for a mixing of metaphors?
With all the people wanting to get involved in the Drupal community platform we’re putting together, we found ourselves needing a place to organize. Somewhere that developers could add their expertise to a profile and help everyone understand just who knows and does what.
What we need is a community platform to use for the development of our community platform.
So what’s better than using what we’re developing to organize what we’re developing? Eating our own dogfood as it’s being made.
Chris registered a domain and we’re getting it set up on a server. The latest bleeding edge code of the community platform will reside on this server and we’ll use it to discuss, manage, and develop the platform itself. This will be a true development server, with code committed to SVN being automatically pushed out to the site.
Will there be breakage here and there? Sure. Does this mean our communications platform will be buggy? At times. But what better way to make sure things work and are useful than by using what we’re developing, while we develop it?
Not a developer? Not involved in building the project? You will be welcome to come poke around, of course. But people should realize that they’re wandering through sausage and not be surprised when they step in some muck.
Soon as we have something up (likely tomorrow), I’ll post a link.
