Ok, I guess I am not getting what is going on here?
Azure is MS's cloud application I take it but I guess I don't understand what the goal is.

Their goal is to make sure that XOOPS runs on Azure.

I am sure that XOOPS would benefit from being customized/optimized to take advantage of Azure.

The nice thing is that XOOPS was one of the selected systems for the competition, showing that we have a good reputation out there
