+<h2 id="status_of_rave">Status of Rave</h2>
+<p>Rave brings together and combines several pre-existing projects and teams 
+working towards more or less the same or overlapping goals. Each of these projects
+is already in production, but Rave is a brand new start. We are bringing together
+the best from each of the original projects in a brand new code base.</p>
+<p>The goal for Rave is to become a lightweight and open-standards based extendible

+platform for using, integrating and hosting OpenSocial and W3C Widget related 
+features, technologies and services. It will also provide strong context-aware 
+personalization, collaboration and content integration capabilities and a high 
+quality out-of-the-box installation as well as be easy to integrate in other 
+platforms and solutions.</p>
+<p>The intended initial features include:</p>
+<h3 id="core_features">Core Features</h3>
+<li>Advanced OpenSocial compliance and optional features support</li>
+<li>OpenSocial persistence and SPI (Service Provider Interface) implementation</li>
+<li>Self-service application administration including security, gadget management and
page templates</li>
+<li>User and group management with full privacy model</li>
+<li>Gadget repository with life-cycle management (install/update/remove) and extended
meta data (categories, comments, ratings, etc.)</li>
+<li>Dynamic and highly customizable front-end engine (skins, pages, tabs, layouts,
+<li>Full OAuth support</li>
+<li>Support for security restrictions on both Gadgets and page/tag/layout customizations</li>
+<li>Set of common and general purpose Gadgets to be usable out-of-the-box</li>
+<li>Support for inter-gadget messaging with examples </li>
+<h3 id="extensible_features">Extensible Features</h3>
+<li>Pluggable persistence</li>
+<li>Pluggable security model with example modules for authentication and authorization</li>
+<li>Support for OpenSocial extensions not (yet) defined in the specification</li>
+<li>Support for other (non-standard, yet) pluggable container services and extensions
+<p>Beyond these initial features the vision and scope for Rave goes much further and

+includes integrating and providing other highly desired/needed features like:</p>
+<li>native W3C Widgets support through <a href="">Apache
+<li>pluggable and extendible content integration and management services</li>
+<li>space extensions and management features, like <a href=""></a></li>
+<li>context aware features and extensions integration for personalized and social network
