Dear Community, good evening.

A few days ago, with a friend of mine, decided to start the Hathi project.


Just a short introduction to our project:

Hathi is a reincarnition of the lphant P2P project.
lphant was a free sofware project for a P2P client. Its community released
several versions under GPL license. Then, when application raised 1.0, some
of their developers felt in the dark side temptations and split the project
in two parts, the GUI, still under GPL and the "kernel", under closed
After that, they released 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 versions, without so much luck.
Bad luck continued and a company bought the lphant.com domain and uses it to
offer a fake 4.0 version of that application.

We already started to work with the GPL source code of lphant, version 1.0
and GUI 1.10. We will make it stable to create a solid baseline for Hathi.
First ideas to implement in this project are:
*Bittorrent support, using BitSharp library
*New logging facilities, using Log4Net http://logging.apache.org/log4net/
*WPF GUI, like Family.Show: http://www.codeplex.com/familyshow
*New deployment facilities, as rpm and deb packaging. Also new Windows

Currently we need help for different roles, including:

* C# Developers, .net and/or mono
* C# QA Testers
* People to create documentation, .net documenting facilities is
appreciated, but we can train for these tasks.
* Translators, for GUI and documentation.
* Ubuntu and/or debian packagers
* RPM (Fedora, CentOS) packagers.

We will appreciate if you spread this message between your colleagues and
