Its goal is to be an open-source project to recreate the Telegard BBS from scratch into a modern, internet ready, and standard system. Telegard was BBS software developed in the late 80’s and 90’s by a team of developers as part of the dial-up modem era. === What are the Goals? * Set new standards for BBS software. * Recreate the feel and configureability of Telegard. * Design using a modular architecture for easy extendability. * Build using modern open-standards (language, compilers, libraries, etc). * Make Internet Ready on both IPv4 and IPv6, and in theory any protocol stack. * Integrate with current internet Mail Gateways as well as support some legacy BBS networks such as FidoNET. * When possible, provide compatability with legacy systems or a clear migration path. === See Also * The official Telegard website (http://www.telegard.net) * or the WikiPedia article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telegard) .
