The future of BabelBox

Hi there!

For the RMLL 2012 [1] I re-installed the Debian Events Box machine [2]
after the previous installation for FOSDEM 2012 [3].  While the latter
was squeeze, the former is wheezy, given that we froze and thus we can
give an idea of the next stable version (also with the new theme [4]).

Given that the Events Box is intended to run BabelBox, before FOSDEM I
followed the instructions on the wiki [5] and discovered some bugs in
squeeze (sorry for the delay, the fact that I do not have an Internet
connection at my flat did not help).  At that time already the idea was
to fix all these bugs (some were solved by Didier Raboud during Open
Source Now 2012 [6]) and then create a debian-babelbox package to
automatize its setup.  Now that I adapted the current code to wheezy
(including a way to install extra packages, e.g. to get GNOME 3 working
with GNOME Shell) it is even more important to update everything.

I would like to import the current code into a Git repository and then
add all the changes, but I was wondering if such a code is already
available somewhere.  I quickly looked through the web interface of the
SVN d-i repository [7], with no success.  Any clue?
