  • Familiarizing ourselves with the Catalyst framework
  • What’s stored in the database and where?
  • Limited Intweb documentation is at https://wiki.hive13.org/view/Intweb
  • The Intweb application is on GitHub (Hive13/HiveWeb)
  • Github issues - organize problems vs enhancements
  • Improvements
    • None suggested for this cycle yet.
    • JimD would like to have a badge driven relay that enables the laser. This may require some work, definitely not a this-month thing, however
  • Problems to fix
    • Email notifications to new members (check HiveWeb/bin/queue_runner.pl)
    • IPN messages from PayPal (issue raised by JimD and confirmed by DaveV on 19 Nov) FIXED by DrewK on 25 Nov. Jim is resending failed IPN messages. Intweb was configured to send verifications back to the wrong PayPal URL
