Thank You very much for accepting to mentor our team on the proposed areas.
But there seems to be some problem regarding participation of a team in the
Program. It looks like, they only allow individuals to participate. So, we
are planning to split the project into two parts:
1. Web browser development.
2. Localization and Porting of Sugar 0.90 to Ubuntu.
We are looking for a third project, and would be great to suggest one
It would be very helpful if we could have a discussion on this on irc, as
soon as possible suiting Indian time.
