  = Libcloud =
- (project add text here)
+ Libcloud is a unified interface into various cloud service providers, written in Python.
Libcloud joined the Incubator on November 3rd, 2009.
+ Our last major release was 0.4.0 on 12 October 2010.
+ Over the past few months we have accomplished:
+  * Code cleanup, including removing Zope dependencies
+  * New driver for !ElasticHosts
+  * Bug fixes and improvements for !GoGrid, EC2, Linode, Slicehost, and !RimuHosting.
+  * Sandbox creation, hosting the Java version
+ Documentation is still currently lacking, and a refresh of the website is in order. Both
will facilitate new driver contributions and project adoption.
+ With the introduction of a Java counterpart of Libcloud, many questions arise on the direction
of the project as a whole.  Initially, library and API development were one in the same in
Python, but with interest in other languages (Java, Ruby, etc), we need to determine how to
best establish standards so to provide some sort of consistency between languages.
+ The direction and formation of a polyglot Libcloud will likely be the final hurdle before
