Add: "and support collaborative web application development."

By this I mean using a Wiki or Wiki-like platform to quickly develop
collaborative web applications.  Examples of existing systems include:
Jotspot (http://www.jotspot.com/) which is Java-based and Trac
(http://www.edgewall.com/trac/) which is Python-based--to name a
couple.

Of course my project, Pandora (http://pandora.rubyveil.com/), is meant
to be such a development platform for Ruby, and I could really use some
funding to get it going...  ;-)

Do you have the timeframe for proposal submissions?

Best,
