What I am looking for: Expandable National business directory where users register new accounts, and can create yellow page like listings for themselves. Listings will be peer-reviewable by other registered members. There should also be geographic relationships between businesses (possibly a google map tie in or yahoo map ). There will also need to be a credit card process to allow for users to purchase upgrades on their listings (more field options, longer listings, higher in search ranking, etc). Listings would also have a community oriented approval/disapproval function (so that the community can flag errors or inappropriate listings). There should be a full featured search engine, as well as RSS feeds of new listings on the system as well as by city. Somehow this should be able to be "open" in the sense that a wiki is open (although we don't want a wiki for this).
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows? (depending on the nature? of the deliverables):
a)? For web sites or? other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software? installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
I would like to see this done in Ruby on Rails/MySQL, but a PHP/MySQL solution might work just as well. MUST NOT be .net or ASP.
