I hadn t read your emails when I wrote to olpc-uruguay olpc-sur, about
considering the chance of asking sugarlabs.org to give some kind of real
certificate on sugar, as a way of 1) encouraging the study of sugar
2) encouraging the translations of teacher's tutorials into spanish
I agree with Bernie Innocenti 's proposal of politely mention the
inappropriate use of sugar name. I think the polite request could be done.
If you haven t read any of my emails I must say ( unfortunatelly) that
regarding the management of the local implementation of olpc (ceibal) where
I happen to work as a highschool math teacher I am never polite :(
But among sugar local members you ll find the one that can use the right
Good luck on this :)
