Wiki updated: http://sugarlabs.org/go/DevelopmentTeam/a.s.o
All my patches are here:

Blogged at http://blog.tomeuvizoso.net/ about the last developments on this.

What I propose is that whoever decides to own the project takes the
ownership of the mainline repo and keeps it updated. Several people
have shown interest and we'll need different skills: php coding, html
coding/design, sysadmin, etc.

Nice to know.

I'm quite excited by this because discovering, creating, modifying and
sharing activities are one of the pillars of Sugar IMHO. I think this
is a missing piece in our infrastructure that will make a big
difference for our users.
