Subject: [IAEP] XO Special interest group at Sugar Labs

In some of the other threads we have been seeing an interest in the
Sugar Labs Community improving the Sugar experience on the XO.  As
such, I would like to create a XO SIG within Sugar Labs.  I have filed
an initial draft application with the OLPC Contributors program for 5
loaner machines for developers.

My idea is to start by getting a working version of the current
versions of Sugar and Fedora running on an XO.  The SIG might lose
some of the specific hardware benefits and mass deployment features on
the first couple of iterations.  But, it can work towards the larger
deployments needs as the development, testing, and triaging processes

One piece that I would like to be very clear that the goal of the SIG
is to be an community led upstream for OLPC.
