User login


Agaric wants Drupal to do n/#nid and u/#uid paths so it would have pseudo short URLs

If Drupal provided n/ and u/ instead of or as an alternative to node/ and user/ it would create pseudo short URLs (like etc) by default.

That would be really cool.

Can't be too hard to add this to the menu system that tells all incoming requests where to go.

Chandler and Meetup Calendar Integration


I am a member of several Meetup groups and I am also a user of Chandler - - an open source free software personal information manager available for Mac, Linux, and Windows (plus a web version). It is committed to standards of course and I know can accept calendar events in the currently most common format, .ics.

Art Head plan

Potential client with some great goals:

Hey Benjamin!

Thanks for the chat the other day - I feel much better about things now!

Here's a little write-up of what I need/want Art Head to do. I've also attached [copied below] my original Civic Space proposal, which has a lot of detail about the goals, users, tasks, and all that rot.

Also, you can read Mission and Goals of the project here:

Web, Email, SMS integration

Next Generation Email list software, proposal by Jamie McClelland of May First People Link:
modular email

Amazingly optimistic and arrogant Agaric marketing:

Agaric Digital Productivity Services

Typical reaction to the concept, from the one person we mentioned it to: "Thanks for this! Very cool."

When Seth Godin speaks, we of the "hey, I can do that" school listen:

Here are three things that are true:

1. Digital technology, especially computers and cell phones, can dramatically increase productivity.

2. More and more users of digital technology are small firms or individuals.

3. The vast majority of users of digital technology are totally lame in getting the most out of the investment of their time and money.

Unuplugged: a Drupal offline synchronization module (idea)

Initial vision:


The Drupal synchronization module

The Drupal Synch module

  • knows that when it last synched you are at node 253, user 43, comment 422, etc...

Logs, configuration settings, installed modules etc. could - should - be one way, from the server to your offline Drupal.

offline to server and back

Drupal 6 dumps the sequences table: implications?

Drupal 6 has the database handle sequences. This may make it harder for Unplugged to do its thing.

Not really though.

Agaric wants version control that lets Drupal core and contrib replace entire directories within our checkouts

As a small web design and development company, Agaric has a very specific need:

To have one part of a project under version control come from Drupal core, to have another part come from our selection of Drupal contributed modules including our own (and this would actually reside inside Drupal core), and to have the rest (theme, custom site-specific modules) be our own work and also reside inside the Drupal core directories.

We then want to be able to check out this conglomeration all at once to dev, test, and live.
