NOTE: Target date for this roadmap is Dec 31st, 2010. This release represents the MVP (Minimal Viable Product) required for launch.


The following roadmap applies to the first release of Batucada, codenamed Tango. The primary goal of this release is to port the most important features from the Drupal version of drumbeat.org. Some additional features include building blocks for open web technologies that we will support, including support for OpenID logins and Activity Streams.

  • Update copy & remove drum skin texture for Drumbeat front page feature box (bug 623320)
    • David to get design assets from Ned / Paul
    • Updated tag line from Matt
  • Update copy and project descriptions on "Our Projects" page & "Get Involved" page
    • Matt to send David updated copy
  • New Mozilla.org "About Drumbeat" page
