* what sugar version SOAS uses?
  in case of collaboration, would be useful to stuck to 0.88 if it is
  about "production" using and not about helping developers to fix various
  collaboration issues in 0.9x code

* run Chat activity, try to share it, change "Private" button to
  "My neighborhood", if buttons in the "My neighborhood" palette are
  inactive, collaboration works on your side.
  Try to chat

* if Chat doesn't work (or buddies don't see each over), see what
  telepathy plugin they are using, type in Terminal activity:

    ps -A -o cmd | grep telepathy | grep -v grep

  the output should be the same for both buddies.
  if it is telepathy-gabble, you use jabber server (and if it doesn't
  work, it seems to be sugar issue and requires new investigation)
  if it is telepathy-salut, you use local connection check if both
  machines are in the same subnet
