Andrés, Go is one of my favorite games, so I'm excited to see that someone has picked up development again! It requires such balance between aggressiveness and defense, as well as local play vs spreading out on the board - I think it's a great game for kids to learn. I look forward to trying out a new version, and I agree that collaboration is an important problem to tackle soon. Adding GnuGo (http://www.gnu.org/software/gnugo/) support would be a great addition too. It would be nice to support GnuGo and collaboration over the same networking framework, but I don't know enough about the collaboration framework and Bitfrost to know if this is a possibility. GnuGo generally runs as it's own process and communicates over GTP ( http://www.gnu.org/software/gnugo/gnugo_19.html#SEC196).
It seems there's a lack of documentation for people like yourself who want to pick up development on an existing activity. Most people who want shell access to dev.laptop.org also want to host a new activity. I wasn't able to find anything on the wiki about requesting shell access. Maybe putting a blurb on the wiki about who to contact would be helpful.
