As an attempt at speeding this up, I propose the following outline of
the DP report to SLOB:
The DP has considered questions posed and proposes the following
directions for ratification by SLOB:
> * Should Sugar Labs be a GNU/Linux distributor, rather than just
> an upstream producing Sugar releases?
No. Sugar Labs is focused on Sugar and its Activities as its primary
marketed software products. GNU/Linux distributors exist separate
from Sugar Labs. Sugar Labs helps them with feedback and Sugar
packaging support, but does not distribute an installable GNU/Linux
> * Should SL be neutral about distributions containing Sugar, and
> refuse to endorse one over another?
Yes. Sugar Labs will neither explicitly nor implicitly endorse any
distribution (including 'Sugar on a Stick' (see below)). The default
answer to "how can one try Sugar" will be 'try one of [a list]', not
'try Sugar on a Stick'.
> * Should 'Sugar on a Stick' be a phrase that SL asks its community
> to avoid using unless they refer to the SoaS-Fedora
No. 'Sugar on a Stick' is not a trademark of Sugar Labs. The name has
been used in the past but will no longer be used by Sugar Labs.
> * Any other question the Decision Panel deems required to provide an
> answer to the original question: "Is the current SoaS going to be
> the primary way Sugar Labs distributes a Sugar-centric GNU/Linux
No, since Sugar Labs will not distribute a GNU/Linux distribution.
