I figure now that people are playing this, using it as an activity-loading
test case, and filing trac tickets for it, it's probably overdue for source
control. :)

1. Project name             : Implode
2. Existing website, if any :
3. One-line description     : Falling-block puzzle game

4. Longer description       :
    The game starts with a grid partially filled with blocks. The player
    makes a move by removing adjacent blocks of the same color in groups of
    three or more. When blocks are removed, higher blocks fall to fill their
    space, and when a column is cleared, the blocks on either side close to
    fill the gap.  The object of the game is to remove all the blocks. Since
    the patterns of blocks above changes when lower blocks are removed, the
    player must carefully decide what order in which to remove the blocks so
    that there are no isolated blocks left at the end of the game. (The
    levels are generated in such a way that there is always a sequence of
    removals that clears the board.)

6. Committer list
   Please list the maintainer (lead developer) as the first entry. Only list
   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
   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 code
       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 directly,
   as might be the case with a "discussion" tree, or a tree for an individual
   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 lists

9. Commit notifications

   [ ] Notification of commits to the main tree should be e-mailed to the
       we chose to create above
   [ ] A separate mailing list, <projectname>-git, should be created for
   [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.

11. Translation
   [X] Set up the Pootle server to allow translation commits to
be made
   [ ] Translation arrangements have already been made at _______________
