minor comment by clr and lots of typographical fixes

  BlueSky has been incubating since 01-12-2008. It is an e-learning solution designed to help
solve the disparity in availability of qualified education between well-developed cities and
poorer regions of China.
  
- In the past month, we set up the website and applied for a new international ip address.
Here is the website link: http://202.117.16.249. We've already put three version of source
code, including complete version、clean version with project files(the project files are
autogenerated by Anjuta, in case it may voilate ASL, we divide the source code into two types,
with or without project files) and purely clean version. We hope that someone could double
check the legalization of the clean source code so we can upload the source code soon.

  = River =
  River is aimed at the development and advancement of the Jini technology core infrastructure.
Jini technology is a service oriented architecture that defines a programming model which
both exploits and extends Java technology to enable the construction of secure, distributed
systems which are adaptive to change.
  
- In November, Niclas Hedhman stepped up as a new Mentor for the project. He thinks River/Jini
is too important to be ignored. This resulted in an extended discussion of what should actually
happen with River. Quite a few voices have been heard, BUT most committers are quiet which
is worrying. The things that the vocal people can agree on are probably;

   * River needs new goals. The community is unable to define a single goal or agree on a
couple of them.
  
-  * People should not talk the talk, if they can't walk the walk. The infamous 'itch' is
obviously not strong enough in any particular area, not enough low-hanging fruits so to speak.
Niclas presented a simple solution; Branch trunk and let those who are active to make the
structural changes needed for a sustained future. Hopefully, those more experienced will also
get excited and help out when they can.

-  * Consolidation of external Jini projects. There are many external Jini projects. Some
of those provide same or similar solutions. Many in the community thinks that these should
merge, possibly under the River umbrella.

- But there are many things, where there are more opinion that there are people. Right now,
we feel that is being a good thing, since it indicates a strong interest in the technology,
and the challenge is to funnel this energy into something constructive, with or without the
initial committers.

  All in all, River project is slow, but we think we have a lot of willingness in the user
community, and just need the lever to exploit this. The goal for now, up until the next report,
is to get us going on Apache River "New Generation", where we indeed shake off the Sun heritage
and start moving forward.
