I would encourage that  F11-S0.88 _not_ become an official Sugar Labs
at this time.  My biggest concern is maintenance responsible.  If the
project becomes an official project, Sugar Labs has an implied
maintenance responsibility.   If F11-S0.88 sucks, it will cast a long
shadow on the upstream project Sugar Labs not the downstream project
where that shadow belongs.

On the other hand, if Sugar Labs would like to assume maintenance
responsibility they are welcome to roll the project into SL.
