  Apache Amber community aims not just to create a simple low-level library, but rather to
provide a complete OAuth framework easy to use with Java code, on top of which users can build
new-generation killer applications.
  
- There are currently two implementation efforts going on in ASF for OAuth v1. A stable implementation
of OAuth v1 is present in Apache Shindig, but it is not actively developed and not shared
with other projects. A Lab having Simone Tripodi as its PI is working on an implementation
for an OAuth library that could be used by other products.

an OAuth plugin for JMeter.
  
  At the same time, on the IETF OAuth v2 mailing list, other people expressed interest for
a Java API and implementation, among them two Apache committers and one active contributor.

  The amount of interest in the OAuth protocol from enterprises, social networks and individual
developers suggests a strong community will develop once the framework to support one is laid.

  Being OAuth a standard receiving a lot of interest, and being v2 an ongoing work in IETF,
we believe there is minimal risks of this work becoming non-strategic and the contributors
are confident that a larger community will form within the project in a relatively short space
of time.

  To the best of our knowledge, none of the initial committers are being paid to develop code
for this project.
  
  == Relationships with Other Apache Products ==

adopting this implementation.
+ A number of existing ASF projects could benefit from an OAuth implementation, including
Apache Shindig, Apache Abdera, Apache Wink, Jmeter which are already using partial and non
standardized OAuth implementations. Basically any other server-side framework or application
could benefit by using Amber. It is hoped that members of those projects will be interested
in contributing to and adopting this implementation.
  
  == A Excessive Fascination with the Apache Brand ==
+ Amber fits naturally in the ASF because :
+  * It is an implementation of an open standard
+  * It is a server component on which many other projects can depend on
