Sorry for missing the meeting - I should have made it, but just didn't 
notice the time while preparing for a talk with a colleague.

I've put some more comments in-line...

Strong +1 from my side on e-books! :)

I love it, too! Well, nothing put in stone at all, but I think we might 
want to clarify the code-name for the next release a bit earlier.

/me thinks he'll try downloading Alice in Wonderland into SoaS builds...

Yes, sounds great! I'll try to get back with more information soon...

Actually, this hasn't made it into Sugar 0.86, has it? I guess we might 
need to find a SoaS solution here, as we probably don't want to direct 
users to the terminal just to change this, again.

Using firstboot might be worth considering here, however, I could use a 
hand with hacking...
