I could perhaps make something on 5 as I have used some time to get it working with Openshift - though my present conclusion is that there are some minor challenges to be solved first to make it work without any faults. If someone else has found a smooth way - working without challenges - please tell me as this then should be presented instead.

Question. Is 14. Overwriting or overriding? i.e, a custom controller?

@Marsh #9 it is.

I've heard both overwrite and override, though technically override should be more accurate.

I'm getting the hang of working with the template customzations and com_html concepts. Also, customizing error pages doesn't seem to be on your list but that's something I'll be getting involved with over the next few days. I'm also using Amazon S3 for media storage so I'd be able to cover that as well.

Sorry but I haven't yet gotten into the more technical aspects yet.

Number 21 is a good challenge. It is all about php composer and Anahita. Who is up for that?

Adding on to Pavel's topic, I think it would be really good to also get an overview or Anahita objects, classes, methods, usages, etc. Similar to the API documentation for 2.1 but in more detail.
