actually, forget about the teamwork sit  Here's the only thing I found 
there relevant/useful to the current state of the w.e.o. work; some 
notes collected from Martin's work.




from Martin:
I had some thoughts which are on the Colophon of my version:


Stuff I'd really like to get done:
1) Wider 'explain evolt' intro for the home page (NB we can have 
different pages for logged in users and anon - that's easy with Drupal)
2) Folksonomy tagging
3) Google Map of members tied into their profile
4) 'Post this to Digg/Reddit/etc' links on articles
5) Better differentiation between new and Featured ('Sticky') articles.
6) Better h1-h6 hierarchy - I'm really happy to use the mollio.com 
styles... http://weo.easyweb.co.uk/node/2 as long as we fix forms!

For visual style, I'll say it again: I really don't want something 
uber-glossy as a high priority goal - I fundamentally don't believe the 
explanation in ALA's 10th anniversary spiel as the site appears to be 
far more front-end focused than the article suggests. I would rather 
something that echoes the variety of what evolters do, than make 
backender folks feel that this isn't a place for them.


*Some* reference to the current style so it's at least recognisably the 
same place would be nice.
