Wiki - Chandler Product page Chandler is a free, open source information manager for informal workgroups. We're building both a desktop application and a web-based application for shared tasks, calendars, notes, messages and other types of information. We're building this for people don't want the formality of a corporate application like Outlook, and for groups who collaborate with people who don't all use the same software or operating system.
Need overview statement that includes both Desktop and Hub in the Product Definition section: 1 April 2006 Bug#
blog overview statement Chandler is a suite of open source projects aimed at helping small groups of people who work together:
Chandler Desktop is an interpersonal information manager that provides calendaring, task management, and shared collections of items.
Chandler Server provides a sharing server for Chandler data as well as an AJAX based web interface embodying ideas from the Chandler Desktop.

The Chandler Desktop application provides an extension mechanism that allows developers to expand the kinds of data types that Chandler users can manipulate and share. Chandler Server acts as a multi-protocol data hub to shared Chandler data, making it available via iCal/webcal, CalDAV, WebDAV and Atom/RSS.
The Chandler projects are hosted by the Open Source Applications Foundation, a non-profit organization whose mission is to "Create and gain wide adoption of Open Source application software of uncompromising quality".
group blog is most likely of interest to the open source community rather than the general end user population    
One-line intro to sysadmin group We're developing the Chandler suite of open-source PIM products, including a desktop client app, a multi-protocol server, an AJAX PIM client, and a hosted service.

Product Wiki Area Chandler is an Open Source, shared information manager (information management service?) consisting of a cross-platform desktop application and an online sharing service. Create common spaces on the desktop and the web to manage task lists, calendars and notes in order to stay focused and up-to-date as a group.
Chandler's expanded notion of task management provides a centralized Dashboard for triaging, processing and organizing your information, regardless of type, format or mode of transport (better word for this?). A flexible information model allows you and your data to traverse traditionally segregated application areas with ease: Schedule Tasks on your Calendar. Address them and send them out. An integrated design allows you to traverse personal, shared and public information spaces seamlessly.
Finally, attention to how people really work and a commitment to interoperability means you will be able to play well with others through email and standards-based sharing.
Target audience: Someone interested in the project from a product design perspective. For context, see: What Goes Into Our Position Statement    
Landing page Collect, Triage and Manage tasks, notes, messages and events from a central location: the Dashboard. Stay focused without losing track of the things you can’t get to or complete right away. Manage calendars that overlay and overlap. Send, Edit and Update messages to iterate and collaborate with others on specific tasks.
Best of all, manage projects together as a group. Share with others right from Chandler Desktop with the Chandler Hub Sharing Service. Then simply point friends and colleagues to a web browser and get started!
Target audience: End-user. For context, see: What Goes Into Our Position Statement
