Hi, I'd like your feedback on a project proposal that I'm sure you will find interesting...
I'm one of the Google Summer of Code (GSOC) students who will be working during this summer on a Moodle project. To be more specific on Moodle flavours, a project that aims to create a system to export and import packaged sets of site settings, plugins and languages packs, from one Moodle site to another; a "flavour" being the name of such a package.
With the amount of Moodle site settings and third party plugins availables it could be used in different ways, and could help administrators not experienced with Moodle to begin quickly.
The project mentor is Michael de Raadt, and during this community bonding period we will be refining the project with your feedback, so it will be much appreciated. Here are some specific questions you could answer:
- what do you think should be included in a flavour package?
- what do you think about the name (flavour vs flavor) there is a Moodle standard about the British/American naming?
- what nomenclature should be used - backup and restore, export and import, packaging and deployment...?
Thanks in advance
