Yes, I am running both the native Debian Sugar packages and
sugar-jhbuild on an OpenRD-Base. You should make sure to upgrade to the
latest Sugar versions (0.86.1/2) because I've fixed a data store bug
that appeared only on ARM so far (behaviour was undefined and it worked
fine on x86).
We are thinking about setting up an ARM buildslave, but it might take
some time. Emulation (qemu) doesn't work reliably and the real hardware
needs a temperature sensor before I'm comfortable running heavy-duty
unattended jobs on it (it doesn't even have a heatsink).
With "Sugar", i mean the platform itself. For activities, it depends on
whether they are pure Python or bundle some binary stuff. x86_64 hosts
have similar issues, though some activities now bundle both x86 (32bit)
and x86_64 binaries, but most likely not ARM ones.
Summary: Yes, Sugar 0.86.1+ runs on ARM. Prefer pure-Python activities;
thoroughly test others before relying on them.
