    1111Working directly with the WSF staff, we received admin level access to the Drupal site and svn commit access to the repository containing the code. We still don't have ssh access to the live server, so we're relying on the Chuva, the expensive and not particularly responsive Brazilian consultant firm, to push our changes to the live site. Mallory, Ross and Joseph worked to fix elements of the site that prevented simple, content updates, particularly due to a broken translation workflow. In two days, huge progress was made on this front essentially tearing through a month-old document that outlined important structural changes to the site that the developers never finished.

    13 MF/PL also provided help with infrastructure. We are also prepared to host the PDF of the program (if it is produced) on MFPL servers, behind a varnish proxy server. We should expect massive downloads because I'm not sure it will get to the printer in time.

    15 During the forum, We were asked to post the various programs to the web site. The documents were typically received on the morning of the program, in proprietary spreadsheet format, rather than the more readable PDF version of the printed programs.

    17 Changes to the fsm2011.org website was done without even getting ssh access to the live site (creating a huge obstacle for us).
     17Changes to the fsm2011.org website were done in conjunction with Chuva, Inc. We obtained access to the site documents and code via a revision control repository. However, we never obtained ssh access to the live site, which created a huge obstacle for us, specifically because we could not affect our changes to the live site on-demand.

    19 We're also working at better integration with wsftv.net.
     19We worked closely with wsftv.net to integrate live streaming as well as fsm2011.org with the wsftv.net, however we and the wsftv.net technologists were unable to find the time and resources during the forum to realize our vision.

    21 We're also working with the Communications Commission.
     21We worked with the Communications Commission to organize media activists to attend press conferences, cover important events, and collaborate with wsftv.net, Ciranda, and others within the commission.

     23The Assembly on Communications listed MFPL as an official sponsor. We organized at least two dozen participants to attend the assembly with a an agenda that we caucused around in preparation for the event. A document ''attach here'' was created from the assembly.
