  This proposal outlines the creation of a new, top-level Blue Sky Distant Collaboration Environment(BSDCS)
within the Apache Software Foundation.
  
  == Rationale ==
  
- The ''Blue Sky Distance Collaboration System''(''BSCDS'') Project is an open source cosmic
distance collaboration project. By open source distance collaboration software we mean: Open
Source Collaboration Player, Open Source Collaboration Recording Tool, Open Source Distance
Collaboration System, Open Source Resources Sharing and Management Platform. And BSDCS can
be extended in such parts as Video Conference, E-Learning, Remote Assistant and so on. Its
features(some screenshots included) is at [http://docs.google.com/View?docid=dcj48f88_09k567f
here].

   * Increase public awareness of BSDCS and of the application of Apache licensing to business
application level software. Lately the news is full of companies that are using a dual-license
(GPL and commercial) model for enterprise software and BSDCS working with Apache opens an
opportunity to strengthen what we feel is a much higher value way of doing things for both
contributors and users. 
   * Help the project attract contributors and service providers to attract clients who would
feel more comfortable with the licensing coming through a well known and established organization
like Apache.

  === Meritocracy ===
  
- BSDCS was originally created by Qinghua Zheng and Jun Liu in September 2005. The BSDCS development
is being done at XJTU-IBM Open Technology and Application Joint Develop Center, more than
20 developers are involved. The BSDCS community is a healthy meritocracy with plenty of developers.

- BSDCS is both a set of flexible, extensible applications such as "Distance Collaboration
System", "Collaboration player", "Collaboration recording tool", "Resources Sharing and Management
Platform " and so on, designed by engineers and educators with years of experience in the
problem domain, as well as a framework that makes it possible to create new applications that
exist with others.

  === A Fascination with the Apache Brand: ===
  
- The developers of BSDCS have been quite successful on their own and could continue on that
path with no problems at all. They are interested in joining the ASF in order to increase
their contacts and visibility in the open source world.
