+<h2>Documentation</h2>
+
+<p>Read <a href="doc/files/SPEC.html">The Rack interface specification</a>
+and <a href="doc">other documentation</a>.</p>
+
+<h2>Supported Handlers</h2>
+
+<ul>
+<li>Rack::Handler::Mongrel (also with Swiftcore's evented_mongrel, just require it before Rack.)</li>
+<li>Rack::Handler::WEBrick</li>
+<li>Rack::Handler::FastCGI</li>
+<li>Rack::Handler::CGI</li>
+<li>Rack::Handler::SCGI</li>
+<li>Rack::Handler::LSWS</li>
+</ul>
+
+<p>Web servers that include their own handlers:</p>
+
+<ul>
+<li><a href="http://repo.or.cz/w/ebb.git">Ebb</a></li>
+<li><a href="http://fuzed.rubyforge.org/">Fuzed</a></li>
+<li><a href="http://www.modrails.com/">Phusion Passenger (mod_rack)</a></li>
+<li><a href="http://code.macournoyer.com/thin/">Thin</a></li>
+</ul>
+
+<h2>Supported Adapters</h2>
+
+<ul>
+<li>Rack::Adapter::Camping</li>
+<li><a href="http://chneukirchen.org/repos/coset">Coset</a></li>
+<li><a href="http://halcyon.rubyforge.org/">Halcyon</a></li>

+<h2>Blurb</h2>
+
+<blockquote>
+Personifi uses Rack cause we like its elegant design, speed and fast
+turn around time. With Rack we serve billions of requests per
+month. It makes our life good!
+<div class="src">&#8212;Armin Roehrl, Lead Engineer of Personifi</div>
+</blockquote>
+
+<h2>TODO</h2>
+
+<p>Currently, we can need help in these things:</p>
+
+<ul>
+<li>Please help test Thin's Rails handler.</li>
+<li>If you know JRuby, help write a Servlet adapter.</li>
+<li>If you know Sandbox, maybe something that would let Rack work with a
+Sandbox (I think it would be needed if frameworks stand on each
+other feet.)</li>
+<li>Figure out how to use Mongrel&#8217;s URL classifier for URLMap (IOWA has
+a cleaned and modularized version of it, I heard).</li>
+<li>Spread the word! Write cool Rack apps!</li>
+</ul>
