This is the Balloon Project Wiki
The front of the site is being migrated into this wiki - these are holding locations. The mess should get tidied soon.
Here's a bit of an index so you can find either the info you want or the place to fill it in.
All developers working on or with balloon feel free to edit away. See HelpForBeginners for details of how to use it if you haven't done the Wiki thing before.
