------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  The code will be written in Java and run on the Tomcat server.
  
  == Background ==
- Caitrin was initially developed to meet the need for a photo gallery during a project at
Nechtan Design.  There was not an open source answer to the need for a photo gallery that
was written in Java so we took the initiative to write one.
+ Caitrin was initially developed to meet the need for a photo gallery during a project at
Nechtan Design.  There was not an open source answer to the need for a photo gallery that
was written in Java so we took the initiative to write one.  Following the initial development
of the code, which was a paid project, I continued to develop the code on a volunteer basis
after seeing a need for this code in the community.  Recognizing that I am just one person
and that this project needs to have a community around it, I decided to look into turning
the code over to the ASF and joining with them to develop this into the type of product it
should be.

  == Alignment ==
  == Known Risks ==
  === Orphaned Projects ===
+ This could be a problem and it is one that I recognize.  I have no intention of abandoning
this code because there appears to be a need for it and I have continued to work on it even
without being paid.  However, as the community grows around it others will take on more of
a role than even I currently have.
  === Inexperience with Open Source ===
  === Homogeneous Developers ===
  There is no community but there is a commitment to develop a community.  As part of that
commitment I recognize that have a diverse community is essential.  The exchange of ideas
is much better for everyone when those ideas of different.
