[Activities] Activity Set for 9.1.0

Hi All,

Learning from the last release, I want to start activity selection early 
for 9.1.0.

I created a section on the 9.1.0 planning page for activities: 

I want to get all potential activities listed there. An activity will 
need to be tested with the release and have a maintainer to have a 
chance for inclusion. Like last time, we will gather input from everyone 
then make a decision on the final set. OLPC management gets the final 
say but I will make sure they hear the voice of the community, 
preferably consensus.

You can help by updating that Wiki page with the details of the 
activities you think should be included.

Personally, I would like to see a few fun (but not violent) activities. 
Something colorful, exciting and fun for kids. My kids recently started 
playing with Spore demos. I'm not asking for something that pretty, but 
a few really fun looking and addictive applications for kids would be great!


What can we do to fire up the activity community (and list) again?

Can you make sure we have the full list of contacts you gathered from 
the last round? We can also cook up an invite e-mail to get people 
thinking about 9.1.0 once we have a contact list.

Target is to have tested, working activities to choose from by the end 
of February.

Any comments or questions welcome.
