Launchpad is well integrated with the Bazaar VCS and has some support for
SVN and CVS. I don't believe there is an "export as Git repo" capability
built directly into Lauchpad at this point. But we could probably set
something up.

The bigger question to answer is: Do we want the OVCri project to inherit
any hardware/software limitations imposed by the One Laptop Per Child
platform? Perhaps there is a need for a subproject that leverages as much of
the main project as possible and integrates it on the OLPC platform. I am
not familiar with the OLPC platform specifications, so I am just speculating
at this point.

If you are interested in the OVCri project please sign up:

For the artists out there, the OVCri project needs a logo for branding
purposes. I imagine something very similar to the OVC logo, but with
lower-case "ri" appended:

Launchpad requires three versions of the logo:

- A small image of exactly 14x14 pixels and at most 5kb in size, that can be
used to identify this project. The icon will be displayed next to the
project name everywhere in Launchpad that we refer to the project and link
to it.

- An image of exactly 64x64 pixels that will be displayed in the heading of
all pages related to this project. It should be no bigger than 50kb in size.

- A large image of exactly 192x192 pixels, that will be displayed on this
project's home page in Launchpad. It should be no bigger than 100kb in size.
