I spent a few minutes trying to find some docs (
http://sourceforge.net/p/allura/wiki/browse_pages/ ) about Allura ,
it's architecture and other characteristics in order to know more
about it . All this in order to figure out what could be done (even if
not started right away ;) .

Result : I could not find much . So I ask ...

Q:
  - Allura API docs (architecture specification , ... or something alike)
    are available somewhere ?
