What is the labs.lds.org web site? Is this something that's open to others or just those who are the developers?

You first have to have an LDS Account. The details beyond that are foggy for me. The impression that I got was that it would be mainly for use by Community Developers. The "labs" stage is suppossed to be the one before the "beta" stage (beta.lds.org).

That's all I know.

Michael is correct. The idea behind labs is for a development ground. Some projects in labs will be community projects like the HT/VT application while others will not be community projects. From the labs environment, we will go into a "beta" environment where specific customers (wards, stakes, etc) will be invited to participate.

My question was answered to my satisfaction.
Honestly, I was looking for the labs site that's a part of familysearch and found it after I'd posted the question. Anyway the responses were interesting.
