-<p>What is the goal of this project?
-<p>What is the scope of this project?
+<p>This project is bound to the <a href="http://scarab.tigris.org">Scarab</a> Issue Tracker project.
-<p>For example:</p>
+<p>It is a <strong>sandbo​x</strong> for the development of software components that</p>
-<li>Develop just enough functionality to scratch a particular itch</li>
-<li>Build a tool just like XYZ, but less broken</li>
-<li>Build the best XYZ-tool ever!</li>
-<p>What are high-level features you are sure to build?
+<li>are used with the current Scarab application but do not belong to the core application:
-<li>What would you write on a billboard about your project? Users
-might only look for a few seconds.</li>
-<li>Use the issue tracker to track features and enhancement
-requests. It is not just for bugs, pre-populate it with feature
-descriptions so that potential contributors know what you would like them
-to work on.</li>
+<li>the web installer
+<li>could be used in future versions of Scarab if they reach maturity.</li>
-<p>What are the high-level assumptions or ground rules for the project?
-<p>For example:
+<p>At the moment and certainly for a while this project does not produce any useful deliverable by itself.
+So iff you are looking for an application, you are at the wrong place,

-<li> we will use programming language X on operating system Y for now.
-<li>We will, or will not, consider certain functional areas like
-internationalization, high security, concurrency, etc. The list of
-functional areas will depend on what you are trying to do.
-<li>Try to keep this part short.
+<p>On the other hand, if you are interested in reading/writing code that could shape the future of Scarab, welcome!</p>
