regularly: sugar, sugar-artwork, sugar-toolkit, sugar-base, 
sugar-datastore, journal bundle (.xo).

Release tarballs are announced in the sugar mailing list. Snapshot 
tarballs are generated from git trees pulled from dev.laptop.org.

I build the rpms in fedora's koji, and from there it gets into olpc 
images. Not sure how it happens now though, the current process for 
getting the rpms into images seems to be in flux.

teach.laptop.org, administered by Michael.

I build rpms locally (in teach) with mock (make mockbuild) and after 
testing I submit them to fedora's koji. See release instructions for 
Sugar in sugar/docs (sorry, no URL, I'm offline right now).

I think it's very similar for other sugar developers.

Thanks for starting this, feel free to ask any questions.
