Yeah, pulling the CSS is probably doable, I'd probably need someone a bit more savvy to help me though

If you pull the css I can take a crack at customizing a django cms for you during some of my time off here. Or if there is another framework people want to use I am game to learn, just most familiar with django right now.

What features/integration do we need? What would be nice in the near future? What would be better in the more distant future?

Must have:
  • Ability to easily insert images and video (YouTube would be sufficient)
Nice to have:
  • Ability to use external Python scripts (for hacking up new toys)
Suggestions for things the website should contain:
  • Category links (what we are, donations, forums, wiki, current projects, etc.)
  • News feed for current events
  • List of member projects (for anybody who wants to advertise their exploits)
  • Sign up page for new members
  • A nice, succinct page describing who we are and what we are all about
  • Donation page (aimed at corporations and individuals; encouraging materials and tools as well as cash)
  • (maybe) Web-based IRC to our channel
  • (maybe) Pages for members to give bios
Half of that stuff can probably be handled by the Wiki. I don't think we'll want our CMS to replace our Wiki. I can help write up some of the text if needed.
