People have identified the following as things that non-profits need that can be met by this subproject:

  • handicap accessability ["DebianNPAccessability"]
  • usability on old donated equipment (can we make something that will work on a Pentium 75 with 32megs of RAM? Can we make something that will work with that hardware, but can have more features with a better processor or memory?
    • Then Evolution won't do as mail application
  • fundraising (database, mailings)
  • finances
  • ASP style services (opengroupware.org integration with ximian evolution contact database, calendars, etc. provide easy website CMS creation, mailing lists, email addresses with existing ["ISPs"] that provide these services to non-profits and activists, centralized and encrypted backup)
  • File and print sharing
  • Volunteer coordination (contact database, todo/project wiki, calendaring/scheduling)
  • Office scheduling (who will watch the desk on Tuesday? Who will be tabling at the Fair on Saturday?)
  • Live event planning/scheduling/managing/ticketing
  • Office inventory, needs, donations
  • Office suite (openoffice)
  • Web browser
  • Mail, news, addressbook client (evolution?)
  • Security
  • Journaling evaluation system (journy mapping, or results mapping) - great to have when applying for funding, or more importantly to look back and see how effectively you are accomplishing your mission.
  • Ease of use
  • Internationalization options
  • Freedom! DFSG compliance
  • Keep configuration limited or removed completely
  • Databases: ["DebianNPDatabases"]
  • Documentation: ["DebianNPDocumentation"]
  • Software for mass e-mailing member newsletters
  • Good HTML editor or other way to maintain web sites
  • A separate server version? ["DebianNPServer"] - a client side version could try and determine, with one or two questions, if it would make sense to do a thin-client model, based on the hardware, or do a regular harddrive installation.
