>> Hi Lionel and all OLPC France,
>>
>> excuse me if this comes too late or isn't to the point, but would like
>> to propose to hack on a mind mapping activity during the CodeCamp in
>> Paris.
>>
>> I think this project has the appeal of being in direct connection to
>> the needs in the field. Teachers from Uruguay, Peru and Panama have
>> asked for such a tool, and have been exploring alternatives that may
>> not be the best: drawing in Paint, using the connectors in Etoys,
>> executing a java app (CMaps) inside the X Activity or using web apps.
>>
>> Happens that a pygtk application for mind mapping already exists and
>> its architecture makes for an easy port to sugar. It's called
>> Labyrinth [0] and was proposed more than one year ago by Jim Gettys
>> [1] though no resources were allocated. Recently, teachers in the
>> olpc-sur mailing lists asked again for it [2] and I gave a quick (2
>> hours) try to sugarize it with some success [3].
>>
>> In [3] you can find links to the activity bundle, a screenshot and a
>> patch to the code in the svn repository.

>>
>> My proposal is for the CodeCamp participants to divide in pairs and
>> each pair to choose one feature to add or bug to fix. At the end of
>> the session, everybody would integrate all the changes and produce a
>> single bundle.
>>
>> Most of the functionality is already in the original pygtk app, it's
>> "just" a matter of exposing that functionality through the Sugar UI.
>>
>> I will try to be in #sugar at FreeNode during the CodeCamp to answer
>> questions.
>>
>> After the CodeCamp, we could send the bundle to teachers in olpc-sur
>> and ask them to try it and give feedback. Also, at some point whoever
>> is interested in following up could contact the authors of Labyrinth
>> and see the best way to upstream the changes.
>>
>> What do you say, looks like a challenge?
