I have also been contacting some distribution to increase the visibility
of Sugar and Sugar Labs.  Jani Monoses from Ubuntu has not had as much
time as he would like to work on Sugar;)  Jonas Smedegaard is keeping
the Sugar packages up to date at Debian.  He is wondering how best to
communicate with Sugar developers.  After Greg's email last week,
interest is picking up at Fedora.

The three biggest concerns from distributions are:
1.  How to communicate with Sugar Developers.
2.  Where to find tarballs.
3.  Keeping the Sugar wiki up to date.  Stale information can be is
worse than no information.
