Project management plugin/ groups mod
I finally got bp up and running yesterday, no forums yet though( I need to upgrade to wpmu trunk before installing bbpress right?) but my idea for this site is to have a collaborative project management social network in the vein of makezine.com with the collaborative nature of comicspace. I think that bp fits most of the needs, I just need to add some features.
The best way I can think of doing this is to mod the Groups component so that it becomes My Project(s).
Users create a project, give an description, can update their status and invite others to work on it. The two big issues are task management and file storage for schematics and CAD drawings(I am going to suggest using google code for code management but svn plugin would be great in the end) The forums could be an ad hoc task manager but it would cool to have something more organized.
I am an EE and have not experience with php(mostly embedded C99) where should I start? How easy is it going to be just to change the name of Groups to Projects?
Any ideas would be great.
