This project is currently written in cakephp.. we want to make some additions, and NOT use cakephp, just regular php/mysql and implement it into the site.
So you dont need to know cakephp (but if you do its a plus)
Basically, the additional features include the following:
Groups (Mini Communities) – “Tree Clubs” would be the name
Group email and IM
Updates and polls
Photo and video tagging
some of this we already have, or we can use some gpl stuff.
i dont think the project is that hard, just might be alittle tricky.
ive also attached a zip file with more details.
