h2. Functional Areas

There are some clearly defined functional areas in the project.  These
are not rooms with walls separating them, but areas of focus.  Many
project members work in more than one functional area, and any member is encouraged to participate
across any or all of these areas.
* *Podling PMC* or PPMC.  This is the group of elected PMC members who have oversight
of the project, who elect new committers and who vote to approve releases
* *Dev* includes the C++/Java programmers, including specialists like UI design, accessibly,
performance, core localization (Bidi, IME, etc.) etc. 
* *QA* includes the testing, manual and automated
* *Translation*/Localization provides the linguistic and cultural adaptability of
the product
* *Documentation* includes in-product help as well as web-hosted documentation
* *Support* includes the support forums
* *Marketing* includes publicity, events, whitepaper, promotion, etc.
* *Committers* are the group of contributors elected by the PPMC and who have submitted an
iCLA; they may perform any/many of the roles above, and also have the ability to checkin code
to the repository and any wiki directly (this is not a functional distinction, more of an
organizational one)

h2. Project Milestones

There are several near-term milestones for the project that are inherent to the Apache Incubation
process, and to the this project specifically:

* *First Build* is reached when we have received and stored into the repository the code from
Oracle necessary to build the current version of on Windows, Linux, Mac and
* *First Release* means that we have a build that is approved by the PPMC and IPMC for release.
* * Website* transfer.  Oracle has offered to keep the existing
website up for a transition period.  But we must develop a plan for how we eventually
host that site.
* *Graduate from Incubation* means that we are approved to become an Apache Top Level Project
(TPL).  This will be the final milestone for Incubation.

h2. Plan Matrix

For each Functional Area and for each Project Milestone, we should have a plan, listing tasks
that need to be done as well as names of project members who have volunteered to help with
the task.  Tasks without volunteers are fine.  This will help us identify
where we need help.  Please link to existing information where relevant.
