The goal of this open source project is to build a utility
application that can be used by Agile development teams to create a
heavily team-oriented atmosphere and to promote hyper-productivity.
Information will be shared in short bursts, in a manner similar to

- Promote teamwork, team ownership of all work, and increased

- Not a time-tracking tool
- Not for auditing by employers as part of a performance review. This

- Not a replacement to usual documentation (e.g., design docs,
