Brief explanation
Most modern music systems are designed around equal temperament. But there are many ways to chose and tune notes in a musical system that offer different expressive characteristics. See also Music Blocks issues.

Knowledge of JavaScript, music theory
Maintenance of activities.sugarlabs.org (ASLO) Sam CG
Brief explanation
http://activities.sugarlabs.org/ is the Sugar Labs app store, where activities are hosted and downloaded. During GSoC 2017 we built ASLO v3 to address a number of deficiencies. But we have a few odds and ends that need to be addressed to bring the new site on line.
Expected results
Update missing license and repository info on the activities found in the Sugar Labs github repository. Popular the database for the new ASLO. Do extensive testing (including creating some test suites.) Document future maintenance on the Wiki.
Knowledge prerequisites
PHP, MySQL, Python, Apache, cron, PHP-Cake, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and git. See [1].

Brief explanation
GTK2 and GST0.10 are end of life. We need to upgrade the remaining activities with these dependencies.
