I'm down with this. I'll see what I can come up with over the next week and a half, and perhaps reach out to the foundation to see if they have any input. I have, briefly in the past, played with some wxPerl stuff. It didn't go very far as I'm not personally a UI person. However, wxPerl with some libraries inherent that manipulate the board would be pretty decent, especially if in an education type setting.
I've been working all evening cleaning up some particular issues with some of my Pi related distributions, and am going to keep doing so as I've got a couple of people doing some real fantastic testing while comparing the code to the docs.
I'm going away for the weekend, but this is now my priority (even though it kind of has been for a few months, it has lagged a bit), and am going to hone in on fixing the issues, cleaning things up, particularly fixing documentation, and then perhaps start adding in some new functionality (the latter is now on complete hold until the former can be completed).
Any further insight/advice/ideas/recommendations would be greatly appreciated, public and/or private.
