-This directory contains a variety of different django projects combining Pinax
-in different ways.
+Starter projects are cloned using

+ pinax-admin setup_project
+
+to form the starting point of your own site.
+
+In Pinax 0.9, we are moving towards starter projects having their own
+repositories and releases.
+
+A list of external starter projects are available on the Pinax website at:
+
+ http://pinaxproject.com/ecosystem/starter_projects/
+
+
+We do still provide four foundational starter projects here for now:
+
+
+zero_project
+------------
+
+This project lays the foundation for all other Pinax starter projects. It
+provides the project directory layout and some key infrastructure apps on
+which the other starter projects are based.
+
+
+static_project
+--------------
+
+This project just serves static media and templates with no models or views.
+It is a great starting point for doing HTML mockups while taking advantage of
+the Django templating language.
+
+
+account_project
+---------------
+
+This project takes the zero_project and adds basic account management
+functionality such as sign up, log in, password change/reset and email
+confirmation. It is a foundation suitable for most sites that have user
+accounts.
+
+
+basic_project
+-------------
+
+This project takes the account_project and adds profiles and notifications.
+It is a foundation suitable for many sites that have user accounts with
+profiles.
