Hello everyone,

over the last couple of month I worked on  an open source java framework to
help me to recognize a specific device/browser and to determine the
capabilities of such. I did it because of frustrating experiences with
existing software. The software is not related to CC/PP, but I followed the
development of it a little and always found it very interesting.

I'm definitely looking for help to improve the software and expand the
possibilities. The most immediate help right now I need is in completing the
device capabilities list. Let me know if you want to join and help. I still
have to lay down a road map and look for ideas where to got to. Goal was to
keep the software small, simple and ready to do the job now and not in 12
month from now which I always thought was the problem behind CC/PP, not
ready to use NOW even so the concept is great. Correct me if I'm wrong. 

The documentation at
http://merkwelt.sourceforge.net/documentation/index.html should be a good
start. The list of supported device/browser types can be found at:
http://merkwelt.sourceforge.net/documentation/resolverProfiles/. . I also
wrote an article about it for an industry newsletter which explains what the
software does:

Appreciate any feedback,
