As I have been saying since SLs foundation and specially when
discussing about SoaS being a SLs project or not, I think SLs should
be solely an upstream so all our downstreams feel that they are
treated fairly.

For example, OLPC is another valuable downstream of us and they are
doing similar work for their machines and their customers.

If F11-0.88 becomes an official project of SugarLabs, then OLPC may
feel that their competing effort is being treated unfairly, thus
hindering their involvement in SLs.

That said, if OLPC says it's ok with it and we agree on this being a
temporary measure until F11-0.x finds a definitive home, then I could
vote positively (not that you are likely to need my vote on it).

About the perfect, definitive home, how would it look like? A
volunteer-run organization whose mission is to support OLPC and their

I'm also worried because as SLs expands to cover more areas, it's
going to become harder to keep the focus we need to grow.
