+## Status of Rave
+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.
+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.
+The intended initial features include:
+### Core Features
+ 1. Advanced OpenSocial compliance and optional features support
+ 2. OpenSocial persistence and SPI (Service Provider Interface) implementation
+ 3. Self-service application administration including security, gadget management and page
+ 4. User and group management with full privacy model
+ 5. Gadget repository with life-cycle management (install/update/remove) and extended meta
data (categories, comments, ratings, etc.)
+ 6. Dynamic and highly customizable front-end engine (skins, pages, tabs, layouts, navigation)
+ 7. Full OAuth support
+ 8. Support for security restrictions on both Gadgets and page/tag/layout customizations
+ 9. Set of common and general purpose Gadgets to be usable out-of-the-box
+ 10. Support for inter-gadget messaging with examples 
+### Extensible Features
+  1. Pluggable persistence
+  2. Pluggable security model with example modules for authentication and authorization
+  3. Support for OpenSocial extensions not (yet) defined in the specification
+  4. Support for other (non-standard, yet) pluggable container services and extensions 
+Beyond these initial features the vision and scope for Rave goes much further and 
+includes integrating and providing other highly desired/needed features like:
+  1. native W3C Widgets support through [Apache Wookie][1]
+  2. pluggable and extendible content integration and management services
+  3. space extensions and management features, like [http://wiki.opensocial.org/index.php?title=Space_extension][2]
+  4. context aware features and extensions integration for personalized and social network
and (mobile) device oriented sites and channels
+  5. enhanced client-side widget messaging, coordination and co-location support like using
[OpenAjax][3] Hub and Registry
+  6. space, page and Gadget based linking, navigation, coordination and collaboration
+  7. inline widget rendering, like [http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SHINDIG-1402][4]
+  8. [Activity Streams][5] support
+  9. integration with other social networks like with [W3C Federated Social Web Incubator
Group][6], [OneSocialWeb][7] and [OStatus][8]
+  10. integration with [Apache Wave][9]
+  11. runtime services monitoring, reporting and configuration/life-cycle management support
