So, in the world of education, students with special needs (gifted, having learning differences, etc) are legally required to have things called Individual Education Plans in the US. Plenty of companies serve web solutions to manage IEPs for some insane amount. Long story shorter:
I've found an open-source web based IEP management program here: http://iep-ipp.sourceforge.net/ . I have built an appliance with the new Lucid Beta and it looks like I can easily manage to produce a TKLPatch to patch either the LAMP stack or the Lucid beta.
My most obvious concern isn't a show stopper: Could the TKL community benefit from such an appliance? All of our contributions were predicated on the appliances being useful for education. But this one is quite specialized. If it can't serve TKL in any manner, I can still make use of it in the TKLPatch primer have thrown together.
My next concern is the last revision was 1.0.006, in June of 2007. I've emailed the contact person through sourceforge, if nothing else than to help with documentation. It's been two weeks and there hasn't been a response.
Does anyone think it's of value to put a patch together for this? And if so, should I wait for a Lucid Lamp stack, use the Lucid beta, or go with the Hardy stack?
Oh and if you happen to come across other FOSS IEP management solutions, please give me the heads up - we're looking to adopt one.
