This project is focused on providing an editing environment to author documentations mixing natural and formal language, easing the application life-cycle management by capturing the intents and design choices made during development.
Specific integration will be provided with existing Eclipse projects to retrieve and synchronize the development artifacts with the formal descriptions. The Intent project will focus on providing an extensible framework and actively solicit contributions in this regard.
