1. Project name               :    Educational Toolkit
2. Existing website, if any :
3. One-line description     :    The educational toolkit aims at
facilitating discussion of problems among students and class and allow for
an automated way of conducting tests.

4. Longer description       :   The educational toolkit is a software to
facilitate discussion in classroom with the help of technology. It aims at
providing teachers and students with a tool to pose problems, compare and
discuss solutions by revolving the discussion around it in something known
as Demo Mode. It can provide flash cards and other objective and subjective
tests that can be used as a formal testing tool for class tests and quizzes
to provide a better gauge of a student's progress to the teacher.

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

   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
       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
       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
   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 _______________
