It's true that most new organizations are capped at two slots, and that
there are 20% fewer slots overall this year than last. On the other hand, we
are not most new organizations, and generally number of slots is
proportional to number of applicants. If everybody on this list helps get
people to apply in Sugarlabs, we will have plenty of applications, and can
(tentatively) hope to get more than two slots. I think that sugar has a kind
of altruistic appeal, and a variety of tasks, that many projects lack. All
we have to do is make sure people don't just think "oh, OLPC, didn't they
switch to Windows?"
