I have many ideas in my head that I would like to discuss with you all.
1) wouldn't it be possible/usefull to create a developper Topic in the forum so that people actually working on how to improve the OR soft would be able to discuss the many possible avenue with the lead developer? A kind of developer thread. That thread could also be usefull for anybody wanting to help developing by participating. There could also be a "Documentation" thread.
2) wouldn't it be possible/usefull to create an addon section for extentions/templates/mods for the OR web site "ŕ la" https://addons.mozilla.org/? It could even be done with the OR soft as a backend that could also be promoted as another way of using the OR software. For an example of this idea, see the PBFlash web site . Then all the extention/template/mods developper would be see as agents and the extension/template/mods as classes. All the addons could be listed under a free and a commercial section or listed by developper. I could create a project on SourceForge.net for the free/open source OR addons if it was the only thing that would have to be federated. We would have all the necessary features to develop some addons. Forum/mailling list, CVS access, documentation section bla bla bla.
3) wouldn't it be possible/usefull to create some technical documentation about the different queries made in on the DB? Or a kind of dictionary of all the possible links/relations between the OR tables in the DB. This could be usefull to get the big picture of the OR code and how to add some features to it faster without having to read the code several times to understand it enough to start hacking it confidently.
From my point of view(I may be wrong), it looks that there is a lot of peoples here that do know very well how the OR soft is implemented but they all have to be really present in the forum to help others getting to it. It looks also that there may not have enough people to handle all the web applications involved in this software. Leaving the main developer alone to handle everythings and loosing some precious time on coding or working for money.
I would be ready to discuss and to help getting this software a step further.
I'm going to stop here as I would like to know if I'm thinking too much before going any further.
