A few years ago, I volunteered to help on h-node.

I wanted to figure out what was hindering the development of this project.
As it happens, the server side code is out of date with the h-source codebase,
and may have been altered without being under version control.
Therefore, the code on h-node server is a different version than the h-source 
as I understand, but I do not have access to the server.

Antonio, the main developer, has stopped developing h-node, but has continued 
on the "easygiant" framework that underpins the h-node server code.

It is my opinion that to bring this project into a more up-to-date and workable 
the database should be preserved as a dump and kept on the server, but all 
(**except** the user table(s) containing sensitive password hashes) should be 
for study/development.

I think it would be time better spent to rewrite the site in python-django and 
the existing data, than to try to pick up the pieces on a php-based codebase 
has fallen out of sync with the code repo.

I would be happy to devote some time to rewriting the site in django,
but I would need access to a partial database dump as described above.
