1. Project name             :PyDebug Python Debugger for XO activities
2. Existing website, if any :
3. One-line description     :Provide native stand alone facility for
writing and debugging Activities

4. Longer description       :This project is to combine programs which
currently exist on

                            :the XO, or easily modifiable thereto, to
create, modify, debug,
                            :and ultimately distribute finished
Activity packages

5. URLs of similar projects : I suppose ActiveState's Komodo debugger
is similar, although source code

                            : debuugging seems too much for the first
pass. Command line debugging is ok

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
      --------   ---------             ------------                    ------

   #1 ghunt      George Hunt                              georgejhunt at

   If any developers don't have their SSH2 keys on the web, please attach them

   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 projects.

   [] 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 list

       we chose to create above
   [ ] A separate mailing list, <projectname>-git, should be created for commit
   [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 _______________

12. Notes/comments:
    I would really appreciate the help and support of a mentor.  Adam
Holt suggested it.
    I would love to be able to talk over ideas and trade-offs.
