Sure, we need it.

I saw the steps on Insight Customization page [1] and followed them.
I don't have any hosting space right now, so I started with OpenShift
Express [0].

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 [2] and [3] ), 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 [1] )
 * 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 [1], 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 [4].

Thanks to all!
