This appears to be Sugar Labs, which is indeed receiving no funding
from OLPC, contrary to a previous express promise by NN. Or so I hear.

We have a three-legged relationhip here:

OLPC Management
OLPC Community
Sugar Labs

My experience at Sugar Camp and elsewhere leads me to the notion that
Michael is correctly describing the relationship between OLPC
Community and Sugar Labs, and that there is no correct description of
the relationship of OLPC Management to anything, including itself.

On the contrary, Ivan, it is NN's statements that I give no weight to.
Michael's statements carry great weight with me, considering how
thoughtful he is about making them. Whether he is correct about
anything concerning the future requires testing as usual, but I give
him points for generally knowing what he is talking about, and talking
about what he knows.

Silent Thunder (??/???????????????/????????????? ?) is my name

The Cosmos is my dwelling place, The Truth my destination.
