Roadmap for my involvement

Hi Mike,

I have fixed the outstanding glitches in the diff feed. The rest of the night 
I have thought about my interests and how to best continue on something 
additional to the diff feed. My development setup runs here:

1. DiffFeed

Do you use procmail? We could use it to setup the scraper instead of cron for 
the mailing list. Since you use irssi to log and run your chat client this 
applies to it as well, as I guess that it supports scripting. 

2. Further involvement

I would like to use our software. As I have joined this project for political 
reasons mainly, I am interested to use the tools to bridge forums and bring 
discussion together. Especially now that I have seen the diff-patching in 
action. But to make it interesting I need the resource management stuff 
roughly working. I can then setup account types and draft positions of 
organisations or forums and start posting there about common plans and ways to 
organize available resources. So I'd like to become an activist myself a bit. 
This will also give me a clearer understanding on the further development of 
the difference feed, I hope.

Since this is a prerequisite for my planned usage and tests with the tools I 
think it would be best to help you with anything being necessary to make the 
resource management work as quickly as possible. I dive in today and you might 
point me to a part I could take care of. Btw. do you have a method to mirror 
resources? It would be really handy to mirror stuff like as raising then happens in forums. Anyway you have 
something similiar for the crossforum extent in mind, so I think we share a 
common interest here.

You already have pointed parts out to me, so maybe we can skype around 18:00 
GMT today to figure it out more closely.

You have also talked about bringing the resource view to the difference 
bridge, which is interesting, since we might want to visualize the difference 
here differently, not in the semantic wiki markup style. 

I have talked on #opensourceecology btw. and they have told me to write a 
proposal about using our software on their Wiki. I can write it up and draft 
it together with you if you like. Can we use a draft pointer to a text in any 
MediaWiki atm. or do they have to support that?
