It typically takes some time to gain commit access to an existing open
source project, we're not huge on process but that is the case here as
It might be best to host the code in some external repository for now,
on say Gitorious or SourceForge or Google Code. Then you might submit
a pull request or patch back to this project. Just make sure the
license of your project meets the conditions of the Piccolo2D license.
