You would be amazed how addicting hacking a projects like this can
be:)  The real kicker comes when you finally upload your project to
activities.sugarlabs.org and start tracking your download numbers.

One thing that would be very helpful would be to move your screen shot
and design documents from git.sl.org to your project wiki page at
http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Math4Team/RIT/Projects/Muthris .  This
way, when  someone is browsing the wiki looking for a new project that
can quickly find all of the relevant information before they need to
dive into the source.

The intended work flow for RIT projects is to start as RIT projects
and then move under http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Activities after they
have been uploaded to activities.sugarlabs.org.  They start as ideas
and gradually work themselves into fully supported activities.  Many
activities are currently maintained and developed by one or two
people.  But we do have a couple of activity wizards who wander around
and fix or improve random stuff:)
