Re: non-Flash solution for embedding Flickr favorites?

NNTP-Posting-Host:  63.245.208.166

I like the idea of having a drumbeat project that coordinates the 
building of web software
that the Drumbeat site needs .  If we have a Drumbeat GSOC next year and 
similar sprints
they could all be managed under a single Drumbeat project.

I agree with Ned for community software projects we could have the code 
hosted on Github
or on Google or on my i <3 theopenweb SVN server
