Hi everyone.
As I am a big fanboy of KDE, interested in this project and have some knolage 
of web based software development and database management so I'm willing to 
donate my spear time for this. 

You have all nice questions and I'm quite sure lots of people have some nice 
ideas so maby it's time to open a wiki page on http://solid.kde.org/wiki/. 
Let's describe this project?
