2. Existing website, if any :
3. One-line description     : Joke Machine allows XO users to start a 
multimedia jokebook with images and sound effects and invite others to 
read their jokes via the mesh.
4. Longer description       : Friends can also submit their own jokes to 
a shared jokebook.
                             : The jokebook author can edit and reject

reflect a unique world perspective.

6. Committer list
    Please list the maintainer (lead developer) as the first entry. Only 
    developers who need to be given accounts so that they can commit to your
    project's code repository, or push their own. There is no need to list
    non-committer developers.

       Username  Full name           SSH2 key URL                    E-mail
       --------  ---------           ------------                    ------

    If any developers don't have their SSH2 keys on the web, please 
attach them
    to the application e-mail.

7. Preferred development model

    [X] Central tree. Every developer can push his changes directly to the
        project's git tree. This is the standard model that will be 
familiar to
        CVS and Subversion users, and that tends to work well for most 

    [ ] Maintainer-owned tree. Every developer creates his own git tree, or
        multiple git trees. He periodically asks the maintainer to look 
at one
        or more of these trees, and merge changes into the maintainer-owned,
        "main" tree. This is the model used by the Linux kernel, and is
        well-suited to projects wishing to maintain a tighter control on 
        entering the main tree.

    If you choose the maintainer-owned tree model, but wish to set up some
    shared trees where all of your project's committers can commit 
    as might be the case with a "discussion" tree, or a tree for an 
    feature, you may send us such a request by e-mail, and we will set 
up the
    tree for you.

8. Set up a project mailing list:

    [ ] Yes, named after our project name
    [ ] Yes, named ______________________
    [X] No

    When your project is just getting off the ground, we suggest you eschew
    a separate mailing list and instead keep discussion about your project
    on the main OLPC development list. This will give you more input and
    potentially attract more developers to your project; when the volume of
    messages related to your project reaches some critical mass, we can
    trivially create a separate mailing list for you.

    If you need multiple lists, let us know. We discourage having many
    mailing lists for smaller projects, as this tends to
    stunt the growth of your project community. You can always add more 

9. Commit notifications

    [ ] Notification of commits to the main tree should be e-mailed to 
the list
        we chose to create above
    [ ] A separate mailing list, <projectname>-git, should be created 
for commit
    [X] No commit notifications, please

10. Shell accounts

    As a general rule, we don't provide shell accounts to developers unless
    there's a demonstrated need. If you have one, please explain here, and
    list the usernames of the committers above needing shell access.
