Drupal Association members fund grants that make connections all over the world.
Having used Drupal for years, I have always found it a more than a little inaccessible. Install one Wordpress CMS and you'll get a good comparison. But I thought I'd try this whiz-bang Open Enterprise thing to put me straight. After all, the purposes of a Distribution is to make things A) easier and B) less irritating.
Open Enterprise is neither.
I tried to install it on my WAMP localhost. You know what happened. I hit the FTP issues and crapped out. I tried installing it without the apps, only to hit FTP errors after installation. So I installed it on my server -
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 1027537 bytes) in /home/content/b/r/e/brenus/html/~test/openenter7/profiles/openenterprise/modules/features/features.export.inc on line 494
I finally installed it without ANY enhancements, got it running, installed images and rotating banner, added 3 nodes for the banner... and nothing. No banner. No place. No clue about what to do next because there's very few available options and no documentation.
THIS is why Wordpress (bad as its organization and documentation can be) will run Drupal into the dust. And you can't say, "RTFM" on this because there is no F-ing manual. And you can't say "then go and do better" because "why bother?"
Why after all your work do you refrain from developing a Distribution that works in localhost when we're told not to develop in a production environment? Why refrain from providing ANY relevant installation information? Don't you WANT people to use your project?
