Get the current alpha code from CVS:

Indecs is Network of Groups which share their Content between each other. The Network is Decentral and to Join the Network you Open a Group or add yourself to a existing one.

Every Group has some Collectors (Server) with diffrent Content. If a collector has new content the whole Network gets informed about it, using Metadata describing the new Content. Every Collector can decide for themself if they Host a Copy of the new Content. Each Server in the Network knows the other Servers, but they only communicate together over Group-Speakers.
