Welcome. Or welcome back :)

To clarify: I'm not opposed to the idea of adding social networking
features to Geeklog. I just think that we don't quite seem to know
ourselves what we'd like to see added - and what it's going to be used for.

So I'd like to see if someone would be willing to invest some time
looking into this, coming up with use cases, a list of features, and an
overall plan. The current project description on the wiki is, IMO,
rather vague and not very convincing. Surely there are Geeklog sites
that you've built or seen where some sort of "social" feature would come
in handy?

This research could very well be done by someone outside the team, e.g.
a Geeklog user or a (potential) GSoC student. But the project also needs
some support on the team's side (a "champion", in project management terms).

bye, Dirk
