The Django implementation of PermaBank is no longer under active development. We recommend taking a look at Sharetribe if you are interested in this kind of app.

PermaBank is a free/libre/open source application which facilitates exchange between users by enabling people to post their gifts and wishes.
It was developed by the Occupy Wall Street Tech Ops Working Group.

... and you should have a running server at localhost:8000.
The login link will not work in a development environment, because it relies on a connection with nycga.net's OpenID system. Instead, log in using the admin site - localhost:8000/admin.
Other problems you may discover indicate bugs and should be reported.
Bugs and feature requests should be reported to the PermaBank workstream at collaborate.occupy.net.
There is also a PermaBank development Google Group.
