Sure, we need it.

I saw the steps on Insight Customization page  and followed them.
I don't have any hosting space right now, so I started with OpenShift
It supports Drupal 7 ( no database other than Sqlite on OpenShift ). However
Insight is running on Drupal 6 ( which doesn't support Sqlite by default ).
So I couldn't continue with OpenShift.
So basically right now I am running a bare-bones instance of Drupal6
with Voting and OpenID ( screenshots  and  ), on my laptop.
I don't have any url which I can share right now ( hence the screenshots ).
Since its a bare-bones setup, but good enough as a base to start with,
there is a lot of stuff to work on:
* Host a development instance to build up stuff.
* Create a theme for Drupal ( based on Maria's designs )
* Integrate FAS ( based on  )
* Add content for Talks, Speakers, Scheduling
* Add FUDCon and FAD related blog posts ( Stories etc. )
I have following queries:
* How to get hosting space for the same? [ domain, diskspace space, database ]
* On Insight Customizations page , there is a step to configure
Drupal with FAS.
How does one add groups to FAS so as to map it with Drupal user groups?
All the modules which I have used are uploaded at .
Thanks to all!
