Members of the sugar community [1] met this weekend at the Linuxtag 2008 [2] in 
Berlin, Germany. Besides meeting people in person and the usual putting faces to 
names we discussed the current situation of sugar.

Hot topics were what work is left to run sugar on multiple platforms (e.g. the Asus 
eee pc) and the structure Sugar Labs needs to have to fulfill this expectation. We 
met as well with Jim Gettys and had an interesting interchange of ideas.

Thanks to OLPC Germany and especially to Holger Levsen we had the opportunity to 
give an introduction into sugar to the winners of an Idea Contest [3]. Robert Krahn 
gave a tutorial about using Squeak on the XO and Wolfgang Rohrmoser handed out a 
XO-Live CD to people who were interested in trying out sugar on their machines.

It was nice meeting you all and hope to see you soon again,
