+# Whimsy Project TODOs
-1. Get a handle on how to test LDAP changes locally.  LDAP is installed on
-   whimsy-vm2, but not on local puppet-kitchen-vagrant repositories.
+The Apache Whimsy project is maintained by volunteers, and includes both 
+the core server and ASF:: libraries, as well as many individual applications.
+Patches are welcome - as is [reporting bugs](issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WHIMSY) or [asking
-2. Define a strategy for maintaining checkout data (mostly SVN) which is
+This TODO :pencil: list is used by various committers for tasks, improvements,
+and crazy ideas alike.  Comments appreciated.
+## Core Improvements :round_pushpin:
+- [ ]  Define/document strategy for maintaining checkout data (mostly SVN) which is
    needed by multiple applications.  For production, that will mean deployment
    on things like credentials for the `whimsysvn` user.  For local testing
    that likely will mean mounting local directories by the VM.
-4. Deploy puma (https://forge.puppetlabs.com/deversus/puma), and merge the
-   [board agenda](https://github.com/rubys/whimsy-agenda) tool into this
-   repository.
+- [ ] Deploy [puma](http://puma.io/) (https://forge.puppetlabs.com/deversus/puma), and merge
+      [board agenda](https://github.com/rubys/whimsy-agenda) tool into this repo.
+- [ ] Define core ASF style & header information in the model and 
+      implement in various applications.  [WHIMSY-81](https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WHIMSY-81)
+- [ ] Improve error handling in appropriate scripts to provide friendly
+      user-visible cues on completion or stacktrace.  [On Mailing List](https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/a6743ba8e0132f865e2f43ea5eded30ad2bc81aeb2445973b8f89087@%3Cdev.whimsical.apache.org%3E)
+- [ ] Implement custom server error messages.
+## Crazy Ideas :tada:
+- [ ] Create templates for new applications and normalize behaviors of 
+      existing applications to make a more consistent user experience.
+- [ ] Implement directory level index functionality to display a list 
+      of other available (and publishalbe) scripts there. 
+      Scan curdir; forall *.cgi where second line includes WVisible, display name/link.
+      Using a positive comment ensures only scripts wishing to be displayed are visible.
-5. Implement a fine grained availability and monitoring system
-   [Whimsy-35](https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/WHIMSY-35).
-   At the moment, this is a simple ping endpoint.
