Obviously we have all of the <Country>-OLPC groups and all of their
government, NGO, and funding partners, and all of the schools involved
in trials. At some level there are partnerships with Brightstar,
Amazon, and others that the community is apparently unable to access.
Similarly for Ministries of Education and other government agencies
that interact with OLPC staff but not the community.

See also the list of Earth Treasury's partners at
http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Creating_textbooks. ET is talking with
other prospective partners.

Can we create some partnership pages on the Wiki where we can track
this? Is there an official OLPC partner program? When will the Sugar
Labs partner program begin?
