-<p>To create an Open Source package management server for RPM based
-distributions. Our aim is to be able to do what the Red Hat Network did for
-Red Hat products to any Linux distribution.
-A part of this is to implement a server for Red Hat's
-up2date tools, extend the functionality of Yum, and be able to scale to
-thousands of machines.</p>
+Originally, Current was designed to be an open source Red Hat Network (RHN)
+server. Today, the Current developers believe in creating a much more
+powerful and useful tool. We believe that there is value in strongly
+authenticated package repositories, an advanced web management interface,
+client tracking tools, and a flexible system for grouping and permissions.
+Many of the exiting management tools limit our freedom as they are
+controlled by corporations and closed source. Other open source tools
+lack strong authentication and management features. Simply, we believe
+that the Open Source community can create a significantly more useful
+management and deployment tool.
