Drupal Association members fund grants that make connections all over the world.
Is this possible?
Boxes provides exportables for its blocks via the (required) Chaos tools module. This allows modules to provide blocks in code that can be overwritten in the UI.
I want to wake this request up.
Boxes also integrates better with Features & allows truly unique machine_names for 'blocks'.
If you need help, I might be able to look into this later in the year if/when my time frees up.
