Please check the status of this specification in Launchpad before editing it. If it is Approved, contact the Assignee or another knowledgeable person before making changes.
Launchpad Entry: https://launchpad.net/loco-django/
Loco Django Development is a project aimed at defining, customizing and/or developing a Django-based CMS for LoCo teams to use as a website.
Better integration with Launchpad.
Python for LoCo sites!
First flesh out the discussion/brainstorming section below, then come up with a design and implementation plan.
This section should describe a plan of action (the "how") to implement the changes discussed. Could include subsections like:
Should cover changes required to the UI, or specific UI that is required to implement this
Code changes should include an overview of what needs to change, and in some cases even the specific details.
It's important that we are able to test new features, and demonstrate them to users. Use this section to describe a short plan that anybody can follow that demonstrates the feature is working. This can then be used during CD testing, and to show off after release.
This need not be added or completed until the specification is nearing beta.
This should highlight any issues that should be addressed in further specifications, and not problems with the specification itself; since any specification with problems cannot be approved.
All are welcome to view the current specs for each of these and provide input. If you have any other ideas for features please add them as well.

The german Loco-Team had developed a single web application (including portal, forum, wiki, blog and planet) using Python (there are only a few Django dependencies left, since Django isn't suitable for bigger things). A beta version is running on http://staging.ubuntuusers.de/ and performs well, but some things (mainly the design) are still missing. After the release on http://www.ubuntuusers.de/ we are going to translate it and publish it under the terms of the GPL.
It's now realeased and used productively on http://www.ubuntuusers.de/. Generalization and Translations will follow.
