I agree that this is a very important project. I'm not sure yet how
much time I'll be able to commit to the project, but I would like to
stay involved as it moves forward.

I haven't touched this in over a year, but my documentation is still
online at http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Projects/VideoEditing

Where I left off, I had instructions for updating the system GStreamer
to cutting edge
(http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Compiling_GStreamer_On_The_XO) and a branch
of PiTiVi with some of the Sugar filestore interface integrated into

It's worth trying anew to see how PiTiVi and GStreamer have improved
in the past year, and then evaluating whether it still makes sense to
base our efforts on that toolkit.

Let's continue this conversation after you return, and see what we can
come up with.
