The aim of the PicoForge project (previously known as PicoLibre) is to provide a set of high level libre software applications that are well integrated in order to provide a collaborative "forge". It makes it easy to deploy a collaborative work platform for developing software or hosting other collaborative activities. Having started (as PicoLibre) in an educational context, PicoForge is now a quite generic platform, comparable (but sometimes less advanced) to other *-Forge software platforms. It groups several high-level applications like phpGroupware, Sympa, TWiki, Subversion, and CVS.
