Subject [DISCUSSION] BlueSky Proposal
Date Tue, 18 Dec 2007 23:43:52 GMT
Incubator PMC,
I've updated the BlueSky project proposal.  Ting Peng and Incubator PMC, 
please review/update as needed and report back any concerns.  This is a 
work in progress... comments , contributions and clarifications are most 
welcome  :-)

Bluesky includes some GPL code taken from mmpeg and wplayer. Removing 
these dependencies (or isolating them appropriately) will take quite a 
bit of time.  I want to advance this discussion quickly to the point 
where we can decide whether, in principle, we want to accept this 
project into incubation.  If we think this will make a good ASF project 
(and one for which we can provide adequate over-site),  let's encourage 
the XJTU team to begin the work on removing the GPL dependencies and 
internationalizing the front end.
I'm very interested in this project for a couple of reasons:  First, the 
goals of the project, if achieved, will improve the lives of many 
people.  Second,  this seems like a great opportunity to build out the 
diversity of the ASF.  I am willing to invest a good deal of time to 
help make this project successful at the ASF.

Mentors, please sign up :-)
