For now, there's only the blueprints and the wiki, as features come as
developers develop them right now. By the alpha release, we'll have a
list of those implemented.
We'll have a platform/procedure for people to contribute and share
plugins, which are right now just different branches of the same
project. Features other than the basic ones will mostly come from plugins.

>> The source code is hosted on launchpad : https://launchpad.net/authpuppy
>> We have a wiki: http://authpuppy.org/wiki
>> You can reach the developer team (and ask to join in!) at :
>> dev at authpuppy.org
>> We'll have a mailing list soon.
>> The puppy even has his own twitter account! http://twitter.com/authpuppy
>> To join the development effort, read

>> If you have any suggestions, comments, questions, you may use launchpad.
>> Wifidog is still alive of course. AuthPuppy is a parallel project that
>> we think will answer the growing needs of our communities better.
