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.

Talmud: Git version-controlled, free, open, collaboratively-written books the way G-d intended

Having experienced writing an epic tech book - 36 authors and 36 chapters and no, it did not break down nice and neat like that - we are convinced there is a better way than the traditional publishing model. Drawing on the tradition of open source free software about which we wrote, we propose donation-funded, completely free and open texts of superior quality and timeliness, marked by clean mark-up and powered by technologies of collaboration.

Code for Contrib: When There's Not a Module for That

Presenters: mlncn, Stefan Freudenberg, misscs

You won't understand everything about module development this hour, or this week, this month, this year, or this decade.

That's why the approach here is to learn how to learn. Not simply, this is what , but what investigation or resource or secret guild of wizards was needed to gain that knowledge?

Joining a Credit Union

Having chosen a credit union over banks, the next step is joining one.

The catch with credit unions is being eligible. No one in Agaric qualified for Alliant, for example, mentioned by some people as the best alternative to the USAA for non-military people. This difficulty makes joining a credit union more challenging than simply choosing one.

Choosing a bank or credit union for a distributed worker-owned collective

I love small banks. However, just as i had to take the Fund for Authentic Journalism to Middlesex Savings Bank (a member-owned mutual bank) when Natick Federal Savings Bank (a single-branch bank) advised me to go there for international wire transfers, so i think my current business needs for the re-forming Agaric require a bank that is significantly more savvy in its online operations than Middlesex is.

Personal Vision With Agaric

I would love for Agaric's goals to include helping move the world toward liberty and justice— the most power possible for all people over our own lives. Taking the values of freedom and openness as moral and practical imperatives, we operate a business proudly for the purposes of our own financial security and bettering everyone's lot in life.

Itinerant web developers survey and meetup tool

How comfortable are you with minimal amenities and accommodations, on a scale of 1 to "I have slept outside in a city before because the hostel wouldn't let me test the wifi before paying"?

git apply does not work from within the local checkout of an unrelated git repository

As freshly documented at http://drupal.org/patch/apply

git apply will fail to do anything when used within a local checkout of a git repository (other than the one for the project the patch is made for), such as if you are patching a module that is within a site that is in Git version control. Use patch -p1 < path/file.patch instead.

Vision for Agaric

draft. The goal is to keep working on this document until it becomes a) inspirational, b) collective, and c) operational. Yes, that's right, this is supposed to inspire, be written by committee, and have a practical handle on the nitty-gritty details, all at once. Starting with unattainable goals takes the pressure off!

Agaric's model is Free and Open: free and open standards, free and open work and management, free and open source code, free and open documentation. We prefer to take on projects that match that vision.
