Indeed, and a critical one.  Mel, (one of the PyGTA developer's) has 
volunteered to work ~8hrs/week on documenting the core Sugar APIs 
(starting with Hippo, most likely).  We're currently working on getting 
him enough disk-space to work on the developer's image.  He'll probably 
be showing up on the IRC channel.  Please try to help answer his questions.

Pepper is an interesting alternate (with work done to integrate things 
like BitFrost and the wireless systems), but unless/until the project 
makes the decision to move to it, we need to work on Sugar, and one of 
the key items there is making the system readily approachable by 
external developers.  The biggest problem there (after the insanity 
around getting the build to work) is documentation.

Have fun,
