I will maintain Pippy for Sucrose, though I may need a bit of hand holding.

Please let me know if what I did seems correct (esp. step 2):

1. l got the most recent version of Pippy from git
git-clone git://dev.laptop.org/projects/pippy-activity
cd pippy-activity

2. ./setup.py gave a bunch of "invalid entry in MANIFEST" errors about
different locales, so I ran:
./setup.py fix_manifest

3. ./setup.py dist_source

4. I asked a crank sysadmin to add me to the Sugar group,
And I moved Pippy-30.tar.bz2 to:
http://dev.laptop.org/pub/sugar/sources/Pippy/Pippy-30.tar.bz2 (805K)

I will move pippy over to git.sugarlabs.org as well.
