I am relatively new to wordpress, but re-familiarizing myself rapidly with web design. (I build a website about 10 years ago..)
Anyway I was wondering whether anyone is familiar with open source / community based web development. I am building a social network, based on buddypress, and the basic idea is that members of the social network can (if they want) contribute to the site-development. What I would like to do therefore is to allow members to access and edit the wordpress admin panel of a site that is an identical copy of the main website.
Basically in this way anyone can edit a certain aspects that needs improvement. Once a stable version is produced it can be presented to the entire community and the main administrators (me) after which it can be tested and possibly voted on for incorportion into the actual site. I have seen certain plugins that allow profile customization so I am thinking this could be a good start.
Looking forward to the wordpress community ideas and reactions!
