We are pleased to announce the Moksha Project and Fedora Community Project.  
For a while now, Luke Macken, Máirín Duffy, myself and others have been working 
on consolidating the the Fedora Infrastructure bits under one unified user 
interface.  We have decided to split the efforts into two projects.

* Moksha - a generic platform for creating live collaborative web applications
* Fedora Community - a website portal built on top of the Moksha platform

What is Moksha?

Moksha is a platform for creating real-time collaborative web applications.  It 
provides a set of Python and JavaScript API's that make it simple to create 
rich applications that can acquire, manipulate, and visualize data from 
external services. It is a unified framework build using the best available 
open source technologies such as TurboGears2, jQuery, AMQP, and Orbited.  More 
information can be found on the Moksha Project Page at 

What is Fedora Community?

Fedora Community aims at being a portal interface for Fedora Project members to 
collaborate within and find information about the diverse Fedora universe.  It 
is created from applications built on top of the Moksha platform.  Fedora 
Community is assembled from a wide-ranging set of modules that integrates 
existing Fedora Infrastructure components such as koji, bodhi, FAS, and PkgDB. 
More information and an example of the interface can be found at the Fedora 
Community project page
http://johnp.fedorapeople.org/fedora-community/ .


Moksha's base functionality is scheduled for completion by the beginning of 
February. Our focus will then shift toward integration and polish to deliver 
the Fedora Community website in March.

irc - #moksha on irc.freenode.net
mailing list - https://fedorahosted.org/mailman/listinfo/moksha

Since at this point Moksha and Fedora Community development are pretty much 
intertwined, Fedora Community will be using the Moksha irc channel and mailing 
list.  At some point in the future we may wish to create a new irc channel and 
mailing list for Fedora Community efforts.
