Settings for sets of sites: Putting Drush configuration into your project repository

Inherit local-only options with 'parent'

Parent is not working across files. Filed support request: http://drupal.org/node/1262230

In an aliases file that lives with your project, so for our SDL project, sdl.aliases.drushrc.php, put in all settings that are true no matter who is using Drush and from where. This is the settings for an externally hosted development collaboration site.

Setting up Mailchimp module version 7.x-2.0

To do anything with the module, you need to connect it to your Mailchimp account. The settings page admin/config/services/mailchimp is where you put your Mailchimp's list API in.

To get this API go to /account/api when logged in to http://mailchimp.com and say add a key. I know this feels weird, as you don't have a key to add, but in fact it will create an API key for you.

Collaboratively writing e-mail (sharing mail drafts)

A test: I gave one GMail account edit access to another GMail account (yes, you can do this) and started editing an e-mail, saved it as draft, and then went to the other account— the draft was there, but not only was there no autorefresh of the other's changes when i edited simultaneously, but it forked and created two drafts of the same e-mail.

Modules in consideration for the SDL project

The Ultimate Project Planning and Management Suite in Drupal

This does not remotely exist yet. Funding a point person to lead the project to make it, and creating or improving all the modules that would make it up, is a job for coordinating community initiatives- itself an initiative that could use support.

Trying out Zotero

http://www.zotero.org/

I was invited to join a group. The link to join a group only works if you already have an account and are logged in. Pretty clunky, that part.

But there's a big file manager at the bottom of my firefox now. We'll see how this works. A lot of it seems duplicative of Evernote. I just want to do all this in Drupal...

As all Zotero notes can be viewed as web pages in Firefox, i expect i'll like the underlying data storage in Zotero a whole lot more than Evernote.
