Prior action points : status + evolution


1/ Event planner 

Status today:
Gilles will produce :

  • DONE : Dedicated content classes
  • DONE : Extension directory (without other existing extension linking)
  • DONE : main settings, overrides
  • IN PROGRESS : main templates (using ez find), and directories, files structure
  • IN PROGRESS : main design (i try to reuse existing CSS), with some enhancements (sort by, next coming up event)
  • IN PROGRESS : Note : need to add ezgmaplocation to the share project

After that, we'll be able to dispatch more developments :

  • The YQL part
  • The community features (logged user)
  • eZ Flow block

Gilles through e-mail: I propose the use SVN, and a specific "ezshevent" extension on the current trunk (without any impact / interactions with other extensions). I'll write an install.txt to explain how to install
Actions still stand :

  • Install ezgmaplocation on : any other action than installing ?
  • Have Gilles create the project on

Note :

  • Anybody committing to one of the remaining tasks should deliver quickly on it, in order to avoid any blocker.

2/ Job Board

Brainstorm on a Job Board feature on
- main goal; to get people in contact for job opportunities
- for freelancers, to post availability
- to post job offers, for partners only (community/business)
- reading to everyone
- posting to the board in general also for partners only
- moderation required
- rule; anything related to ezpublish can be posted on the board (example; mysql, frontend, dba, javascript, php dev, designer, translator, services, webmasters, editors)
- no CV asked because of security/privacy
- profile example;
- Quality assessment : every company hired on a contract and being listed in the yellow pages of the eZ Community will have her "contract counter" increased by 1. The company hiring has the possibility to rate the service delivered. Possibility for the contractee to request endorsement/recommendation from the contractor.
- in a second phase we might consider supporting transactions (payment)
- in a second phase; let the party posting the job, rate the task/person who finished it (badges, reputation system etc)

3/ Clean-up in Participation model and need to be checked and duplicate information removed.

4/ upgrade

5/ Misc
