Have we discussed the cost yet? How does it work against the budget? The idae is to have something ready when our CN contract is up, yes? This is the first I've heard about FOSS4G. Sounds great if the money is available.

that we should get the Drupal prototype rolled out productive at OSUOSL
the sooner the better, start migrating right away and have it done by
