Get development and site-building modules and enable and configure them automatically

update: it exists,

it should be a drush script that puts files in sites/all/modules/devel
keeps them up-to-date with git
and then enables them

is just too much overhead.

Basically all the reasonable approaches are here:

Contributing to the Community for Joy and Gain (Design for Drupal Boston 2011 session proposal)

This proposed session didn't make it on the schedule, but we'll be perfecting this concept which we can't help but write about and take notes about and wax political about.

Contributing to the Community for Joy and Gain

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

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.

Checklist module and/or site

Agaric wants Drupal-native (or Redmine/Chiliproject) checklist storage, sharing, and use for things like the not-yet-ultimate web site development and deployment checklist.

The Drupal 7 road map of Checklist module looks very helpful but it is moving slowly.

The ability to have tasks link to how-tos, to be able to share and re-use lists, with user or project-specific tweaks, would be fantastic.

Installing Chiliproject on Ubuntu 10.10

[After testing this out, we chose to use the package-managed redmine for now]

Installing Chiliproject with PostgreSQL on Ubuntu 10.10.

Following the instructions on Installation on Ubuntu wiki.

sudo mkdir -p /srv/www/chiliproject
sudo adduser --system --home /srv/www/chiliproject --group --shell /bin/sh --disabled-login chiliproject

Display raw content via Drupal without any page header, sidebars, footer etc.

Sometimes you want content that is still managed by a content management system, but not displayed with any of the blocks or menus or anything else the CMS usually helpfully supplies. You may even want to take over the content definition or other information sent with the page but not seen. In other words, Take over entire page with HTML/XML defined in content.

Is there a module yet to allow a piece of content to completely take over a page? Defining all the headers and HTML and XML with nothing generated by Drupal?

Agaric going to Drush Aliases

It would be nice to package our Drush aliases with our projects.

Where does drush look for aliases?

It is possible to have your site-specific aliases in sites/default, such as sites/default/aliases.drushrc.php.
