  = Amber =
  Amber is a project to develop a Java library which provides an API specification for, and
an unconditionally compliant implementation of the OAuth v1.0, v1.0a and v2.0 specifications.
OAuth is a mechanism that allows users to authenticate and authorise access by another party
to resources they control while avoiding the need to share their username and password credentials.

  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.
  
  Recently, developer NanHongzhen had committed the IPv6 and Satelite patch of RealClass in
BlueSky jira. I've download the modules and tested them(only IPv6 module,'cause i don't have
an enviroment with satelite.). It functions but those files are not well orgnized and probably
not legal in certain config files. I need to clean the files first and then commit them to
repos.

+ 2010-July Olio Incubator status report
+ Olio has been incubating since September 2008.
+ Olio is a web 2.0 toolkit to help developers evaluate the suitability, functionality and
performance of various web technologies by implementing a reasonably complex application in
several different technologies.
+ Most users are now using the 0.2 release. A few bugs have been found in this release as
more users are now using it, but none of them are major.
+ We have several new users of Olio this quarter with all 3 versions of the application being
used.
+ Olio seems to be the workload of choice for testing virtual machines. Several researchers
as well VMware are using Olio for this purpose.
+ Graduation From Incubation:
+ Diversity of committers is the primary issue with the project - although we are adding users,
we haven't been successful in converting them to committers. We have a few users sending patches
for bugs they file.
+ We could use the PMC and Board's help in spreading the word about Olio to get better traction.
