[IAEP] [SLOBs] F11+0.88+XO-1.* as a SL project

The last item on today's agenda was the motion that the Fedora 11 with 
Sugar 0.88 builds for the XO-1 and XO-1.5 be a new official project.

Details, again:

* It is sponsored jointly by Paraguay Educa and Activity Central, 
coordinated by Bernie Innocenti and hosted by the Sugar Labs 
infrastructure: http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Deployment_Team/Sugar-0.88 
and http://people.sugarlabs.org/bernie/olpc/f11-xo1-0.88/.

* If the board approves, Bernie will add a link to the sidebar, near 
Sugar on a, Stick, and create a top-level homepage with content directed 
at users.

The original discussion thread was at 
http://lists.sugarlabs.org/archive/iaep/2010-June/011153.html, for 
reference. That's where we started today's discussion.

David Farning was in-channel and gave us a brief overview: "Just to give 
an idea of where we are trying to go with the porject.... AC and PY will 
sponsor 2-3 developers physically located in PY to continue maintaining 
the release.  Bernie will be retunring to boston and will start work on 
a new a S.90 on fedora something release."

To summarize where I think we stand here...

1. It sounds like tomeu, cjb, and mchua (the SLOBs who've chimed in so 
far) are happy to grant this project access to SL infrastructure if they 
choose to use it - it's a FOSS project that's Sugar-related, etc.

(Mel would personally say that it's SL Infrastructure's call whether and 
how to support this sort of thing, SLOBs approval shouldn't be needed 
for a Sugar-related project that is FOSS, really.)

2. cjb and tomeu and mchua are wondering whether that infrastructure 
access (which you *don't* need SL project status for!) was what the 
project was asking for, or if there was anything more to the request to 
become an "official project" - what resources, specifically, would they 
want from SL that they think becoming a "SL project" will grant them? 
Bernie, can you respond?
