Project Description: 

The VISTA will work to develop, an online database of resources to help those in poverty in the North Shore Port area.

add features
improve packaging
improve user friendliness
add infrastructure

An example of a new feature would be a report that lists the services that are not available in a given city.

We hope to have our software apt-get installable on Debian/Ubuntu Learning the Debian package system is a prerequisite for this goal

To achieve even better user friendliness, we do lots of usability testing. We watch people use our software, change things they are struggling with and re-test.

Infrastructure includes unit tests, integration tests, documentation, little utility scripts (like “clean”)
