-- Current site

Status of Eric's effort (extracting info Josh needs; other...)   Eric also working on migration of views to D6.

-- Drupal 6 (Walt)

Status of migration effort and work plan for the next week.
Summary of what's been done:
• Ubercart vanilla works just fine on D6. (d6.nynjtc.net)
• Some views work. Others to be converted by Eric.

• Two theming issues for Kipp to address

o Membership - need adjusting for D6.

 Two column theming
 Can we move "add second family name" to a better place?
 Ideal is to gather names on /membership page - even if not yet logged in (anonymous visitor joining) Later, Ubercart creates anonymous account at checkout.
 Three scenarios: anonymous, not logged on but have id, logged on

• Do not use attribute numbers ... use symbolic references instead!

Ann to develop Work Order for Kipp to size (DONE)

o Donate

Defer discussion until we better understand Kevin's requirements.
