------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  ESME has attracted a great deal of media and end-user attention based on its unique feature-set
and the underlying technology (see http://blog.esme.us/2008/09/25/esme-in-the-news/).  We
believe that ESME's vision is unique in the area of microsharing.
   
  The ESME project team is interested in joining the Apache Software Foundation for several
reasons: 
- To help the project attract contributors and service providers who will feel more comfortable
with the licensing coming through a respected, well known and established organization such
as Apache.

- To facilitate the growth of a broader community of users. The project currently lacks sufficiently
clear direction, leadership, and process; we believe the project will benefit greatly from
Incubator mentorship.

  As the only open-source micro-messaging ("Twitter-like") project which is both enterprise-oriented
and targeted at the Java platform, we think the ESME project is an ideal fit for the Apache
Software Foundation.

  == Alignment ==
  ESME aligns well with ASF projects utilizing J2EE infrastructure such as Tomcat. Of particular
relevance are projects such as Lucene and Maven. Key libraries used include Lift and Compass,
both of them Apache-licensed projects. ESME does not use any GPL code.
  
- Although ESME orginated within the SAP community and has SAP-specific extensions, the core
server code is and will continue to be designed to run on any J2EE-compliant server. SAP-
(or other vendor-) specific extensions will be implemented as modular plug-ins, so as not
to create a dependency on SAP or any other vendor.

  The ESME codebase is Apache 2.0 licensed, and currently hosted at Google Code.
