Excellent, Doug. Glad you and your teacher can join us.
There's a lot of info to digest, so feel free to ask questions via this
list and we'll all do our best to answer them for you. Other than that,
dive right in.

We should have more info on the API and where it will end up for the
summer after the Final for the RIT Honors Seminar tomorrow (Monday)
afternoon when final presentations will be made. In the mean time,
Info about the final and the meeting is at

Good question! I had assumed the students were using the SugarLabs.org
GIT repository for version control, but it's not obvious on either page
where the source is right now. That is if there's been any code written
so far. I'll check with the students tomorrow and see if we can add
some links and such before they're off for the summer.

Right now, it's fairly loose as to who's doing what, but the API being
written at RIT should have complete docs if the kids want to get an A
for the class.

It's our pleasure. I'm sorry if I didn't answer all your questions as
throughly as I'd like. I have yet another cold and I'm sure my minimal
answers aren't as welcoming as they could be. Good news is that summer
is almost here and my children will find fewer germs to breed and share
with the family.
