From the olpc-uruguay list in an unrelated thread:
"Si utilizamos las claves de desarrollador (que son las que permiten
hacer cualquier cosa en la maquina), pero al momento solo se entregan
por solicitudes puntuales (proyectos de grado por ejemplo)." - Ing.
Daniel Castelo - Plan Ceibal - Área Técnica
/"We do use developer keys (the ones that allow you to do anything with
the machine), but at the moment they are only given for specific
requests (like for example thesis projects)." - Eng Daniel Castelo -
Plan Ceibal - Technical Area
I know its not official but its a pretty clear indication that developer
keys are not available to everyone.
This makes Yama's concerns valid and important, I think.
Since the board will probably meet in UY next month, this should be an
item in our agenda.
