 Gone through the mails sent there. but from I gather (Stand to be
corrected)  the direction for the project has clearly outlined. I like the
idea of using a cross platform to allow the application to be easily
adaptable, but not much was said about building the library.
And I am a bit confused as to whether the two are being considered as
distinct project or are they meant to be done together by a single person as
one project.

i checked out the code yesterday, I read from the wiki about getting a
gazillion eclipse project when I import from just the root directory, but I
wanted to see the full scope and thought well the cant be that many?? I was
wrong :-D. I can see the project is very extensive.
My question is where to focus on when beginning. I choose the import only
the Application core project (After I got amazed, by the gazillion).
But I want to know about which packages basic which will help me get up and
running quick.
