Also see the [[:Category:Tools|Tools Category Index]] for links to additional projects.  Code for our projects is hosted at [http://code.creativecommons.org code.creativecommons.org] or [[CcTools Berlios|Berlios.de]]; see the [[Source Repository Policy]] for information on contributing code or starting a new project.  See the [[Source Repository Information]] page for general information about the available modules and how to check them out from source control.
=== Supporting Projects ===
We also maintain several library projects which are reused in some of our applications:
* [[License Wrappers]] language-specific wrappers for representing and manipulating license information
* [[Creative Commons Web Services]]
* [[Web Services Client Implementations]]
* [[pyArchive]]
* [[Ajax License Chooser]]
* [[libfeedback]]
=== Exploratory Projects ===
The projects below are currently being discussed or explored:
* [[Developer Challenges]] - a long list of challenges set for exploration
* [[Content Aggregation]]
* [[Dream CC Tool]] - A discussion of the "ideal" CC tool; possibly the successor to ccPublisher?
* [[Development Ideas]] - A collection of nascent ideas for CC-enabled tools. As these become more fleshed out, they'll be moved to their own pages.
