WuhWuh 0.1 Functional Specifications and recruiting effort

March 1st, 2004

I am actively seeking a couple of people to work with me on the WuhWuh project. At least one person (more preferable) to help with the documentation and one person to help me with the code. A word of warning for everyone interested in working with me. I am a stickler for thoroughness and I hate to work with people that do not keep their promises. That being said, I also do not really care how long it takes you to do something as long as you finish it within the time you decided on at the beginning of the project.

Here is what I am looking to achieve in terms of documentation:
1) We need an exhaustive run down of each hack implemented (you will have the list of hacks) including the url, original author, functions used, how to tweak the functions and where the function is added into the original WP code.
2) There will need to be exhaustive install/migrate documentation and ways to fix common issues (which should be added on as and when they are discovered)
3) We need a Functional Specification for WW (this will require most work and deserves most energy) From a users’ perspective, we need to know how to use each hack in great detail and how each hack can be helpful
4) Once the Release Candidate is out, work will be needed to come up with a Functional Specification for WuhWuh version 1.0 (in keeping with WordPress Version 1.2 or the next big release)

Here is what I am looking to achieve with code:
1) Most of the hacks listed below have already been implemented. Some changes/additions need to be made which I will work on.
2) I would like to see each hack controlled from the main wp-admin interface. I need someone to help me with that.
3) I REALLY want to implement 2 different hacks which I will need help with:
– Comments for Links in the Link manager (destined for WuhWuh 0.1 RC2)
– Multiple Blog capability: This hack has to be seperately implementable into a vanilla WP install, and of course in WuhWuh RC2
4) The original design for WuhWuh 0.1 was to start with a new installation and not provide a “migration tool”. That goal has changed since the inception. I need some help in creating scripts to add the database changes (in a vanilla, already populated WP install) for a WW install. So the “migration” would mean running a php script to modify the database and replace exisiting WP files with WW files. Simple and succint.
