  +This project came about when developers from the <a href="http://jakarta.apach​e.org/turbine/">Turbine</a> project <strike>sto​</strike> appropriated the CSS and HTML templates already in use by <a href="http://scarab.tigris.org/">Scarab</a> and <a href="http://eyebrowse.tigris.org/">Eyebrowse</a>, which in turn are developed at CollabNet for its <a href="http://www.collab.ne​t/products/sourcecas​t/">SourceCast</a> product, a commercial successor to Tigris. The fact that several projects were using the same resources suggested that a formal sharing arrangement would be a good idea, in replacement of the ad-hoc copying and manual synchronization that had previously prevailed even among the CollabNet-sponsored projects.

  -The <a href="http://sytle.tigris.org/">Style</a> project houses CSS designed
  -to be a sharp tool for building clean user interfaces for web applications.
  +Among the goals of this project are
   </p>
   
  -<!--
  -<p>
  -What is the scope of this project?
  -</p>
   
  -<p>For example:</p>
   <ul>
  -<li>Develop just enough functionality to scratch a particular itch
  -<li>Build a tool just like XYZ, but less broken
  -<li>Build the best XYZ-tool ever!
  + <li>To advance Web application user interface coding, interaction model, and accessibility standards among open-source projects through code sharing and peer review</li>
  + <li>To document, largely through the accrual of a discussion archive, usage and rationale of the stylesheet and template regime that inspired creation of this project</li>
  + <li>To provide stable stylesheet hosting via CVSWeb for ease of development - possibly also custom xhtml DTD hosting to facilitate use of online validation services.</li>
   </ul>
   
   
   <p>
  -What are high-level features you are sure to build?
  +Not among the goals are
   </p>
  -<ul>
  -
  -<li>What would you write on a billboard about your project? Users
  -might only look for a few seconds.
   
  -<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.
  -</ul>
   
  -<p>
  -What are the high-level assumptions or ground rules for the project?
  -</p>
  -<p>
  -For example:
  -</p>
   <ul>
  -
  -<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.
  -
  + <li>To promote - much less enforce - a monolithic look &amp; feel for Web applications whose developers are project members. This will be a mark of failure, though perhaps unavoidable in the beginning. The challenge is to accommodate and encourage a robust genetic diversity <em>within the species</em> - i.e. while retaining the ability to share source and bear fertile offspring. </li>
  + <li>To provide general CSS or HTML support, or a forum for discussion of Web authoring issues not closely relevant to the problem space of the source code hosted here. General, philosophically compatible Web authoring resources are noted in the <a href="/servlets/Proj​ectDocumentList">​Docs</a> component.</li>
  + <li>To host a production stylesheet server like <a href="http://www.w3.org/St​yleSheets/Core">W3C's</a>​.</li>
   </ul>

  +Daniel Rall created the project, with Todd Fahrner as co-owner. Daniel is the Java guy; Todd is the CSS/HTML guy. This makes Daniel the bigger, more generally useful fish, while Todd is the little fish with interests and skills most narrowly scoped to this project. We stand on giant fins.
