Bernie, SLOBs,

another issue on the table someone else mentioned is about Sugar / Sugar 
Labs proactively develop some such a program for encouraging Sugar-ed 
doings.  Probably y'all know how important is any sort of paper or 
"official" (letterhead, signatures, seals, the more the better) 
recognition over there.  I know that is not the way of the FLOSS, but 
since we have to live this split reality, we might as well do it.

I'm not in the SLOB list so maybe someone reroute if you think this 
makes sense.

on a lighter note:
Even the Cub Scouts in the US now have some sort of badge for 
computer/gaming stuff...
