==== Description: ====
GNURing is free software for universal communication which respects freedoms
and privacy of its users.

GNURing uses distributed hash tables for establishing communication. This
avoids keeping centralized registries of users and storing personal data.

GNURing is mostly written in C++ and is split in three main components:

 - The Daemon (dring and libring): It does not interact with users but it is
involved in every command. The ring daemon si responsible for all networking

 - The LRC layer (LibRingClient) is written in QtCore and facilitates clients'
portability between operating systems. Communications between LRC and the
daemon is done using D-BUS

- Finally, the client. Written in GTK, our main client is called gnome-ring.
The code base of gnome-ring consists mostly of UI code as the rest is handled
by LRC and dring.

Other main components of the software architecture of GNURing is our main

- OpenDHT: This is the DHT implementation we use in order to make GNURing

- PJSIP: This is the SIP implementation used in GNURing to manage signaling.

- GnuTLS: The GnuTLS library manages our certificates, keys and encryption
methods for audio, video and text.

- FFMPEG and LIBAV: In order to make data transfer faster and lighter, Ring
uses codecs for compressing and decompressing it during the transport. These
codecs are managed by the FFMPEG and LIBAV libraries for audio and video.

==== Other Software Required: ====
This was checked in the GNU eval already.

Our main dependencies include:
- OpenDHT
- GnuTLS

==== Other Comments: ====
Ring has already went trough the GNU eval, I am submitting the project on
Savannah as required by Richard Stallman's email to address@hidden
