What is ScrollKeeper?
ScrollKeeper is a cataloging system for documentation on open
systems. It manages documentation metadata (as specified
by the Open
Source Metadata Framework(OMF)) and provides a simple
API to allow help browsers to find, sort, and search
the document catalog. It will also be able to communicate
with catalog servers on the Net to search for documents
which are not on the local system.
