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.

>> Wifidog is still alive of course.  AuthPuppy is a parallel project that
>> we think will answer the growing needs of our communities better.
>> Thank you,
