This would initially be for the OLPC XO-1.5 machines. As to how/when
there will be a new build for the OLPC-XO-1.0 machines, it is a
subject of heated debate. The issue seems to be finding the resources
to make the necessary patches to support the graphics systems on the
XO-1.0 in Fedora 11. (This work has been done for the XO-1.5, but
since it uses a different graphics subsystem, it is not applicable to
the XO-1.0.)
