[Linux-aus] Re-igniting the Membership Committee
neill at ingenious.com.au

I have been quietly working on a possible replacement for memberdb.
It's still in quite an early state, but the code, such as it is, is on
github. It uses the existing DB schema.
My goals for this work are:
1/ Move to a modern, well supported platform - I've chosen flask
2/ Re-implement the current functionality as a first step
3/ Implement the extra functionality as per the requirements doc
I am not interested in working on either Drupal or CiviCRM. I have some
sympathy for the arguments for CiviCRM but lack sufficient PHP skills to be
useful in such work (and am not interested in acquiring them). OTOH, I
don't want to get in the way of such efforts, and recognise the risk that
the work I do may never actually be used by LA.
I talked to several people at LCA who were also interested in working on
memberdb, some of whom would probably be interested in PHP based solutions.
I have at this point got most of the membersdhip side working, but am yet
to seriously tackle elections. Progress is going to be slow for a little
while as I catch up on my day job. My next step was going to be to contact
the people who expressed an interest in helping.
I would be happy to be part of or to work with a Membership Subcommittee.
