A subversion account will be very good. I never used wxPython but I 
could to learn it. :)

I didn't know so much to coordinate a entire project... My initial idea 
is to colaborate throught software development. :)

If we have a lider I can collaborate with work. ;)

Since there is a project running with PyQT, why don't we join forces?
