Hello to all.

Sugar Labs Chile held a stand in FUDCon meeting in Santiago, showing Sugar
through XOs as well as Classmates running SoaS:


In a lightning talk, we asked for ways coordinating Fedora's community
contribution with Sugar development and maintenance, and coordinating
support for local deployments.  We had the pleasure to meet Guillermo Gómez
(alias Gomix), a publicly known venezuelan contributor in the Fedora latam
community.  Guillermo coordinates volunteer work and recruitment and had
good ideas on how to promote help on maintaining Sugar packages for Fedora
as well as development through Rpmdev project (

So please feel free to coordinate efforts, and running this to other lists.
Best regards,
