+## Accepted projects ##
+
+### Libcloud REST ###
+
+HTTP interface for Libcloud (http://libcloud.apache.org/) which exposes all the
+Libcloud functionality through a RESTful API. Currently Libcloud has a big
+limitation - you can only use it with Python. Adding a REST interface would
+allow users to leverage Libcloud functionality through an arbitrary language
+which knows how to talk HTTP.
