Proton, a Web Development Toolkit
The fundamental goal of the project is to provide a high-quality and functionally-complete library for web based development, written in C.
Apache was chosen for an incubator for the guidance the community can provide.
The contributed work was inspired by open source development and by the need to have functionally complete implementations of the Atom specifications available for developers to use. To be successful, the project needs to build a strong and diverse community to validate its mission and carry it forward. Further, the project needs to be guided by the same general principles of open and transparent development that has helped to shape the standards upon which the project is based.
The initial committers for the project are all experienced with open source projects.
