[sugar] Making updating easier
Sat Jun 21 10:58:03 EDT 2008
one of the things that repeatedly came up during a greet meetup at
Friends Community School near DC which we had earlier today was that
updating the software on the XOs was still too painful for many people.
So especially with G1G1 2008 looming on the horizon I'm thinking that it
might make sense to come up with an easier way to update the software.
Some of the potential solutions discussed are
* adding a separate activity that basically acts as a simplified gui for
olpc-update, allowing users to upgrade to the latest signed
software-builds (with an option to include release candidates)
* integrating update functionality into the sugar-control-panel
* adding a gui for Bert Freudenberg's script
What do you guys think?
