We've been working hella hard on the sprint so far and yesterday was no exception! at least for the book sprinters, the coders went off on a social to Stamford castle. Although they weren't out of contact for long, we met up with them on IRC while they stopped for a Costa coffee "Come for the coffee, stay for the WiFi" or so the saying goes .

Were you thinking of attending the Mumbai CiviCRM Meet up - July 2010 last Thursday in India or wondering what exactly is shared, discussed, explained, who attended ?…
The next phase of the CiviSchool project is collecting and maintaining all parent / student information online. This avoids the annual filling out forms work by the parents, and also the stuffing of envelopes by school staff during the summer and reentering all the information in the SIS when school starts.
Web redesign project
The results of the first day of our Mumbai meetup were quite impressive. We successfully knocked out around 7-8 issues.
Day two started out with high energy levels. We divided the day into three sessions.
The Conservation Fund is the nation's foremost environmental nonprofit dedicated to protecting America's most important landscapes and waterways for future generations.
In 1.7, event management was added to CiviCRM. The timing on this was good for us (Ideal Solution, LLC), and allowed us to use CiviCRM for a customer who primarily wanted to allow members to sign up for events, such as conferences. The difficulty was that conferences typically have multiple options, each with its own additional price: basic registration, meals, guests, etc. Each additional option increases the total number of possible combinations. Price Sets were added to manage this.
I installed CiviCRM 1.5 with Drupal 5.0 following the same steps I took installing it with Drupal 4.7 and got no errors.
CiviCRM wouldn't show up in the modules list in the admin section, so I poked around a bit to see what the overall setup was of the Drupal 5.0 modules.
I moved the civicrm.css file into the main civicrm folder, moved the civicrm.module file into the main civicrm folder and then created a civicrm.info file and follwed the same format as the other .info files (a couple of lines of code describing the module) to write to the civicrm.info file. I copied the civicrm.settings.php file to drupal/sites/default folder and went back to the Drupal 5.0 admin area and lo and behold, CiviCRM 1.5 was there. I enabled it and it worked.
This is what worked for me using Control Panel, FTP, File Manager and PHPMyAdmin.
Before you begin make sure you have a working Drupal 4.7 already installed. Have the name of the database, database user and password handy as well as the name of your mysql host. If you can’t find the name of your mysql host anywhere on your host’s site then your mysql host is probably localhost. Save yourself the aggravation and get all these things written down beside you before you even start installing CiviCRM.
1. Use FTP to upload the zip/tar CiviCRM directly into the drupal/modules folder.
2. Go to your Control Panel or whatever method you use to create new databases and create a new database called civicrm. You will already have a database user name and password from your Drupal installation. Go to your list of database users and add a user to the new civicrm database you just created. Make sure to give the user full privileges.
