Hello,

It's great to hear from you!
* We work primarily on unix machines - ubuntu specifically. IDEs we have
worked on include Eclipse, NetBeans and Aptana studio.
* I know git, but am not very experienced with it. I have worked briefly
with perforce.
* The course evaluation would be in the beginning of December, so that
gives us time till the end of November to complete the project.

If there is any more information I could provide you with, I'd be more than
glad to.
I'll be going through the link you've mentioned shortly. Once again, thank
you for your response.

Regards,
Deborah
