[geeklog-devel] GSoC 2010 idea - E-Commerce/Shopping Cart plugin

I'm glad you've taken an interest in the e-commerce project. We have not
defined the requirements very clearly, but our thought was that an existing
(GPL) e-commerce or shopping cart program could be incorporated into a
Geeklog plugin. Of course you'd have to overlay Geeklog's security model and
implement the plugin API. That would allow products/services to available
based on user/group permissions and allow the entire thing to be integrated
into a Geeklog site.
I'd suggest spending some time exploring Geeklog, with emphasis on how the
security/permissions model works.
As for specific requirements, they haven't been well defined for any of the
ideas on the brain storming page. That places a bit more of a burden (and
added flexibility) on you to define the project's goals in your application.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
