Excellent news. All successful software -- regardless of license,
platform and other factors -- thrives on a network of highly skilled
professionals around it.

IME, an important challenge going forward for all involved is to
maintain a high level of professionalism in the good and in the bad

There are lots of little things -- for example managing expectations
and knowing when you are speaking for yourself / your company, when
for SL, when for OLPC. Some people have @laptop and @sugarlabs
addresses -- making sure that it is clear who you are, and what hat
are you wearing at a particular time is not trivial.
