+      <p>This is a Google Summer of Code 2013 project that aims to
+	replace the <tt>fetch(1)</tt>-based method for getting
+	distribution files, such as source tarballs, for the third-party
+	applications (ports) with an intelligent Download Manager
+	Service (see links for more information).</p>
+
+      <p>All the modules highlighted in the project wiki have been
+	completed (see links).  Specifically:</p>
+
+      <ul>
+	<li>A service which receives and serves download requests.  It
+	  samples download speeds from different mirrors and uses this
+	  information to pick the best mirror on the next request.  It
+	  can migrate jobs between mirrors if it realizes that a
+	  complete download from a different mirror would be faster than
+	  proceeding with the mirror it is currently using.</li>
+
+	<li>A status dump feature has also been added to the client
+	  (<tt>dmget</tt>) which dumps the information about active
+	  downloads, speeds from mirrors, etc.</li>
+      </ul>
+    </body>
+
+    <help>
+      <task>The implementation (especially job migration and dumping
+	status) has not been tested thoroughly.  Test the code, write more
+	unit and regression tests.</task>
