Initially we (Dave Nalley, Brian Powell and Larry Cafiero) were going to
do a small release with local media about how the Fedora Ambassadors
worked with RIT and how the honors seminar students would assist us with
bootstrapping 4th grade math software for Sugar and the XO.
The thing is... as we get a little farther along, the more good
information there is to pass on. Frankly at the outset I could see
myself answering with "well we just don't know yet" for more than a few
Personally if we could do a joint release with Red Hat, Fedora, OLPC,
Sugar Labs and even Strong Museum, it could be possible to reach beyond
Local Rochester news. At the very least, we should expect the
Linux/FOSS news outlets to carry it.
