Somewhere in 2006 some Contributors have started to found small CommunityProjects around specialized areas. This helps people to coordinate their editing efforts and to find like minded editors and with knowledge in similar areas.

In fact such projects and joined efforts are the way to deal with the growth of both the community and the database. Feel free to contact, or join these groups, or found a new one!

List of Projects

The Soul project is still in its infancy, and for now just has a compositions list.
