[Grassroots-l] project application: OLPC Europe

Postby Holger Levsen » Mon Jan 21, 2008 11:12 am

Hi,

we (a group of people starting OLPC Europe, website below) would like to apply
for a project hosted on laptop.orgs infrastructure, currently mostly to have
a central git repository to store the sources for the Documentation,
Presentations, Information, Code and Press Material.

1. Project name : OLPC Europe
2. Existing website, if any : http://wiki.laptop.org/go/OLPC_Europe
3. One-line description : OLPC Europe is a OLPC grassroots organisation in
Europe

4. Longer description : quoted from
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/OLPC_Europe/Vision

1 OLPC Europe

We recognize, that under certain situations an european
platform can make life easier for local OLPC
grassroots, also for the newly starting ones, and for
the people at the MIT. This platform shall under no
circumstances be meddling with the local grassroots but
instead help them to grow and flourish.

We propose the following very simple and basic common
guidelines which shall help in forming this platform:

1.1 OLPC Europe IS

1. a Forum / Platform for exchange between local
2. groups, towards MIT and back, European institutions
and with other groups worldwide
3. helping in organizing XOs for the local groups
4. supporting and cherishing the autonomy of local groups
5. focusing on rough consensus and running code

1.2 OLPC Europe IS NOT
1. going to do a local pilot in your country
2. going to tell you what you are allowed to do


5. URLs of similar projects : I dunno ;)

6. Committer list

Username Full name SSH2 key URL E-mail
-------- --------- ------------ ------
#1 holger Holger Levsen <holger@layer-acht.org>
#2 crazy-chris Chris Hager <chris@linuxuser.at>
#3 bastiaan Bastiaan Bakker <bastiaan@olpc-nl.org>

If any developers don't have their SSH2 keys on the web, please attach them
to the application e-mail.

-> Chris and me already have a ssh2 key on laptop.org, I'll send Bastiaans
key when I resend the application to access@rt.laptop.org tomorrow - as
described in http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Project_hosting

7. Preferred development model

[X] Central tree. Every developer can push his changes directly to the
project's git tree. This is the standard model that will be familiar to
CVS and Subversion users, and that tends to work well for most
projects.

8. Set up a project mailing list:

[ ] Yes, named after our project name
[ ] Yes, named ______________________
[X] No, not yet. For now we will use
http://lists.laptop.org/listinfo/grassroots

9. Commit notifications

[x] A separate mailing list, <projectname>-git, should be created for
commit
notifications

12. Notes/comments:

Shell accounts and translation infrastructure are not needed.


regards,
Holger

Hello,
is there a list of OLPC groups in Europe?
I'm aware of the Austrian one and judging from the letter there is one
in The Netherlands.

For the record: there is a Bulgarian group as well.

Greetings,
Alexander.

Good idea. I just made a new page
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/OLPC_Europe/Countries, where the grassroots
can list themselfes. (Plase add your groups there!)

In the meantime, you might have a look at
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Communities (OLPC Bulgaria group is included :).
