more suggestions, also means more work.
adding bulletin board support is very easy in the current site. Add a
relation 'Comments' add one to many relations with comment object, for
which you need to add an objectType 'comments'.
Similarly add members, and make relations, and also apply voting. If
you have datamodel any application can now be developed on top of this.
Earlier you were planning to bring in the mailman archives in the
gnowledge base, you can now get them in the data, so it really becomes a
bulletin board doubling up as a mailing list.
also try to get the data from registered volunteers into the current
database and can integrate both.
