The project, though, shares the same name as the GroundWork IT monitoring system and the Groundwork CMS. But Hepting said he's had no complaints so far about the name: "If it ends up being an issue or too confusing to people, it can easily referred to as 'Groundwork CSS,' which is the actual GitHub/Twitter handle, so I'm not too worried about it. What's in a name?"
Groundwork, according to the project's Web page, enables development of applications scaling from handheld devices to large-format televisions.
