I am the author of Karel J Robot and now Monty 
Karel. I am finishing a port of the monty 
(python) software to pygtk graphics ( I have 
several other versions) and would like to get 
this ported to the olpc and contributed to the 
community. If someone who is good at this can 
give me a hand in the final port I'd love to hear 
from you.

I developed in under Fedora 8 and it should be 
done in a day or so. I'm cleaning up the code and 
getting out last minute kinks.

If you don't know about the Karel series, it was 
originally a book Karel the Robot by Rich Pattis. 
I've taken over the series now and have produced 
several books and software. It is used in high 
school and in intro college courses around the 
world - especially the Java version in APCS 
courses in the states.

Any help would be appreciated. I've found the 
wiki pages, by the way and am trying to get it 
going. I have two olpc machines I bought recently 
under the bogo program.

You can learn more about karel if you like, from my web site.
