This is my suggestion for the README file. Anyone else have any ideas
/ suggestions.


Welcome to Apache ESME  <>

Enterprise Social Messaging Experiment (ESME) is a secure and highly
scalable microsharing and micromessaging platform that allows people to
discover and meet one another and get controlled access to other sources
of information, all in a business process context.

Apache ESME is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software
Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Apache Lucene PMC. Incubation is
required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates
that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have
stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects.
While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness
or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be
fully endorsed by the ASF.

See for the current
incubation status of the Apache ESME project.
