hi jain,

here some notes i took concerning a scripter 2 gsoc project.
it's not about covering all of them, but about having some ideas on top of which to build a gsoc project!

- porting the full scripter 1 API to the scripter 2

- implement a doc site like the one for PHP
  (take as an example http://php.net/manual/en/function.in-array.php)
  - the basic description of each command is managed through a svn server
  - the commands are stored in the database and can be used to complete the "official" description
  - the software for doing it is free and downloadable
  (imo, this form of documentation is one of the main reasons for the success of php)

- enhance the API to enable a content synchronization with a wiki

- enhance the API to enable some sort of imposition

- enhance the API to enable some simple mail-merging

- document how ne commands can be added (i've written some articles on how to do it for scripter 1)

- document the steps for adding the support for further scripting languages.

voilà, and now it's time to go to bed!
