This page is in discussion

In Producing Open Source Carl Fogel points out the importance to put faces to projects. This was discussed to some degree on OSGeo mailing lists and it was added that we geo people should also make sure that we point out where people are by adding coordinates. That project is still under way.

What about making it possible for people to add a photo to their member page. We could do that with this Wiki but Drupal might provide more comfort and/or privacy? Currently privacy is really high, only registered users may see profiles. The User pages should also have a node of their own with the possibility to add some text and links.

Do we want people to use the OSGeo portal to blog?

CMS Edit Permission

Is there a policy for users and permissions in the CMS? I have added new role "admin" and put most everybody in it, added a WYSYWIG editor. etc. By making every new member get a role (not admin but with some right) we would potentially help get more content, books, etc.
