That sounds like a great project for the event!
Thus far the only ideas I've heard have been to work on the framework
itself (I remember someone throwing around some plugins we could add
features to). However, at this point there isn't much defined for the
event's structure so I would assume ideas like this would be welcome.
Personally, I would much rather hack on something that will help a non
profit in our city than the ssec ui plugin. Whether this project becomes
part of the hackathon or not I would love to lend a hand if needed. I'll
get a hold of you to discuss the issue more.
