Here's the roadmap and latest milestone's tickets:


Most interesting, especially for geo stuff, is the addition of generic
attributes to packages (ticket:43). We also want to add manifest
support (i.e. list of "files" in a package) but that isn't planned for
this iteration.

First step is probably to get CKAN installed and tests passing on your
machine. I'd be happy to help here -- probably best done on okfn-help
or irc so we don't clog things up too much here :)

I think you're absolutely right. We'll try moving any applying for
funding  to okfn-help or here.
