The comment on the change is:
move my narrative from "Proposal" to "Background"

  == Proposal ==
  
- Photo gallery software provides users with the means to store, manage, and publish photographies
and other digital images. A user creates one or more photo albums and puts images into them.
Metadata stored with the images allows for searching. The primary means to access the photo
gallery will be web interfaces, for human interaction through a browser as well as for machine
retrieval. Images are published by granting read access to everybody or to a group of invites.
- 
- *Insert name here* will be an open source photo gallery application including the display
piece, an access control layer, and upload capabilities. As Web 2.0 continues to catch on,
more site operators are wanting to provide others with a way to publish their own content,
including pictures.  *Insert name here* will provide a way to do this.

  This project will have both the back end and the front end needed for a complete gallery.
The idea is to have a rigid design for the content repository with a very flexible display
piece. The images in the content repository will be protected with granular access control.

- Initially the proposal idea for a photo gallery was brought forth due to a project that
had been started at Nechtan Design.  While discussing the possibility of forming a community
around that project (called Caitrin) a community started to form.  Others with interest in
the subject and problem space started putting in their ideas and offered to donate code that
could help.  It was decided that the project should start from scratch with a new architecture.
 With this decision, the high level design below was started.

This proposal is based on a high level design that evolved from the subsequent discussions.
  
  We are aware that we have significant work ahead of us, not only in the code to be written
but in finding a community to support the project.
