There are four parts to SPLURGE: data cleanup, getting it into a properly configured database, a web service that talks to the database, some Javascript that can dropped into a catalogue to talk to the web service. They all exist, but not all of them are quite done and they don't all talk to each other. The purpose of this hackfest project would be for people to familiarize themselves with the work that's been done, and then try to finish it up.
