The Amber project is a web application and client side program designed to allow users to search for, browse, comment on, and rate software applications available for Fedora and potentially other Linux distributions and repositories. In the long run, this application could be extended to allow users installing the application.
Benefit to Fedora
The Amber project will benefit the Fedora users by informing them about a certain applications. When a user is new to Linux, especially Fedora, it is difficult for them to find a substitution for a proprietary software. When they use Google to find the application that may best suits them, Google will gives so many open source applications. The user may want to look through the application forum, other blog comments about the software, etc. This task is very tedious and could be wrap into one place, which is the idea behind the Amber project itself.
