This project is currently in development and has no releases yet.

If you want to support this project, co-maintain, or participate in another way feel free to contact me. I'd love to add more people to this organisation and bring it forward. I invested already several thousand of hours in this project and can probably not bring it alone to an end. Help to make the CMS world a better place. :)
