History[edit]

web2project started as a fork of dotProject in late 2007.[3]

Since the entire original team membership consisted of former dotProject contributors, the design and development decisions were quite similar to dotProject itself. As time went on, the systems diverged though web2project has maintained a "converter" which allows dotProject users to perform a one-way conversion to web2project. At present, the web2project community suffers from fewer add-on modules and a smaller community in general.

As of July 2010, web2project is available via RPM install for Mandriva Linux.[4]

Support and Community[edit]

The primary means of day to day support is provided free by volunteers in both the forums and via online documentation.
