I'm a comp. sci. major who has to do a project involving the workshop module for a course I'm taking this semester (actually a group). I've read a lot of the documentation and forum posts regarding workshop. The interface is nightmare-ish to say the least. And I haven't even looked at the code, but I've prepared myself for the worst.
So I've read about this transition to Peerlight, but in the meantime, has there been any work done on the module to improve the interface and possibly the rubrics? I saw that there is an Assignment module add-on which allows for reusable rubrics. I think that would be a good thing to incorporate into the workshop, the rubrics pertain to the course, not necessarily just the assignment. That way the rubrics are reusable and modifiable.
I don't want to start hacking away at the 1.9 code if some of this stuff has already been worked on for 2.0.
I applied for CVS access, but haven't heard back yet. Where should I start?
