The fail whale may be going the way of the Dodo if you don’t retweat the message below.

In April, NASA CoLab released a Request For Proposal (RFP) for a Partnership Software which very explicitly requested the software to be built on an open source CMS, used for one particular use case, then packaged up and released as an installable application. We (Chapter Three LLC) recently won the contract with a Drupal solution, and our goal is to build an out-of-the-box “Drupal Product” that organizers can use to facilitate participatory conferences (ala Drupalcon, BarCamp etc.). The distro will support conference invitation, registration, session proposals + voting, note-taking, and forming post-conference working groups.
