We need a plugin that will power the Commons Information section of the profile and personal home page. Based on the wireframes and team discussions, I'm going to suggest the following for the first iteration (keeping in mind that we can add fancy stuff in the future):

- New custom post type: "Commons Information". Available to Editors and Administrators (current_user_can( 'edit_others_posts' ))
- The Commons Information "widget" won't really be a widget, but just a function that spits out some markup
- Widget should just show the most recent item + featured image. Mockup doesn't show titles, but I imagine we'll want them - right below where the image appears
- The 'show more' link at the bottom will fade the content of the widget, send an AJAX request, and show the next item (and cycle back to the first one when done). Don't show the 'view more' link on noscript.

Chris, feel free to chime in with additional thoughts or suggestions.

Dan, are you up for the challenge? :) It's a bit tricky because you'll have to develop it in isolation (you won't be able to put it in its proper place in the theme yet because that place doesn't exist yet; see #3329), but I don't think that'll be a serious problem. Let me know what you think, or if I can help get you started somehow.
