Customizing labels in Project Management

Hey,

I have 2 issues that I am hoping someone might be able to help me with.

1) I'm trying to customize the labels in my PM installation. I am using a string replacement module for the moment because editing the views does not change the labels.

For example I am changing "Projects" to "Bookings". I change all the necessary components in the titles and field names, etc but the do not reflect on the pages.

2) When creating a new entry for an "organization" it shows additional fields:

Make Meetups Quarterly or Trimesterly?

Hi guys!

I commented on the discussion about a march meetup but I don't think anyone saw it.. I'm proposing making our meetups less frequent.

I think monthly is a bit much because we're few to attend atm :) Let's make'm quarterly or semesterly so that more people will join for the ride!

We could also make them a little bit longer so they have more content.

So either:
- march / june / setp / dec
or
- march / july / nov

Thoughts?

What should we do with the Storm group?

The name of the Storm set of modules has now changed name to Project Management.

(You've probably heard about this already: http://groups.drupal.org/node/279238).

Thanks to everyone who has commented on the several issues / threads about this, and commented on my blog about the change (and about how we should have done this earlier!)

One of the remaining "assets" of the Storm set of modules was this group.

If you think 0 was too few sessions on project management at Drupalcon Portland, Please RT me.

I am really, incredibly disappointed by the total disregard for PM's at Drupalcon Portland.

A whopping (EDITED) ONE sessions on a topic that is obviously growing in importance with every conference. Dozens of sessions proposed this time around had a PM focus, yet none were picked.

If you're as steaming mad as I am to see such an important topic go overlooked again, RT my tweet please:
https://twitter.com/svettes

At this point, I do not expect to see my core conversation picked either considering how much they're ignoring us.

Sad. Panda.

    DrupalCon Portland submissions

    Hi, everyone! DrupalCon session submissions are due Friday at 11:59pm PST, and I've been working on a couple of non-PM sessions. That being said, we've had a lot of great ideas in this group, and I wanted to see if anyone else was submitting sessions and if anyone was interested in maybe submitting a session together or getting a small group together to do a panel and talk about our experiences. Any takers?

    Hey there all...

    Our Drupalistas Study Group tripled in size this last round (from 5 to 15 !! :) ). We are not a big group, but we ARE having a good time learning Drupal in quick, bite-sized chunks. It has been loads of fun. So much fun, in fact, we are starting another "track" of learning.

    Resource List

    During our PM Meetup this morning, it was suggested that we have a permanent list of resources we find helpful.

    We can add pages to the PM Group to break out topics of discussion (a group organizer needs to add the pages). See http://groups.drupal.org/marketing-drupal for an example of pages. We can also create a Wiki we could all add resources to.

    I think a combination of a Resources discussion page and a Wiki we could all edit would be good. A group organizer could edit the main group page and/or the Resources page to add a link to the Wiki.
