Summary of idea:

Ailurus is an application installer [1]. It lists specific software for specific task. It lists few software, rather than all packages in Fedora repository. It helps new users because new users can find out software they want directly, rather than do searching in a lot of packages. Many Fedora users are using Ailurus now.

Our goal is to make Ailurus customizable. For example, users can add comment for software. Software introduction can be changed. New software items can be added. Existing software items can be removed. Under the user's permission, the changes to the software items can be uploaded to a web service on google app-engine, therefore other users will obtain a benefit by downloading the changes. This application installer supports extensions. Users can add their own function.
