Thanks for all your questions and we appreciate you taking the time to work them out. Hopefully we can help clear some of your confusion.

Eden and Agasti are projects within Sahana - Eden has named their software the same as their project; however, Agasti has two 'products': Vesuvius and Mayon. Vesuvius (0.9) is a Person Finder product, and Mayon (2.0) is focused on Municipal Emergency Response. Mayon is also the development focus and will have it's first stable release later this year. That may be helpful in understanding that there are three Sahana softwares available. Now, on to the questions.

1) For any questions regarding Eden you'll want to contact their team directly; however I can confirm that they are the Python branch and build on Web2Py.

2) Vesuvius and Mayon were both designed and developed in Linux; however they are both intended to be available on Linux and Windows builds. As they are both still being debugged this is an ongoing process.

3) Mayon is built on Symfony. As Vesuvius is largely a distillation of Sahana's Legacy code base (the existing code from Sri Lanka) it was built outside of a framework.

For 4 & 5 - 0.6.6 is no longer being supported by the Sahana development community as it contained a lot of outdated code whose originators began working on other things. The branch is available here:
