We often need to collect data from many people and share the collected
details with them.
For example, If I want to collect the list of "Free Software
Contributors in Tamilnadu", I can use a wiki to collect details.
It is tough to maintain the wiki from spam for admins (that’s why
ilugc wiki [ http://wiki.ilugc.in ] is inactive) and not users friendly for quickly adding details. (will ask even tough captcha, if we want to secure from
The quick and dirty solutions seems to use a google doc form builder
and get the details from the users as a form.
Users can input the data easily.
Collected details are stored as a spread sheet. We can share the sheet
url to anyone with permissions to view only or edit.
Currently, there is no Free/Open Source alternate for this.
I hope we can easily build such system using any web framework
like cakephp, django, Ruby on Rails, etc.
