LabourStart, the news and campaigning website of the international trade union movement, is a complex website.

It runs a very large number of scripts written primarily in Perl with newer ones in PHP. It now runs a number of MySQL databases but also several older, flat ASCII databases. It works in dozens of languages and has recently moved over to Unicode.

Nearly all the programming work until now has been done by only one person. This is slowing things down, and making the continued growth of the site impossible.

We’re going to use this blog to tell you about technical problems we’re having, and if you’re familiar with PHP, Perl, JavaScript, MySQL and Unicode, you should be able to help.

LabourStart is a volunteer project and we cannot pay you — but we will give credit here to those who provide us with technical support.

Thanks very much for your help.
