> Hello,
> I now consider sugar-build pretty much feature complete and in a

> Highlights:
> * Simple to use
> git clone git://git.sugarlabs.org/sugar-build/sugar-build.git
> cd sugar-build
> make build
> make run
> will give you a running sugar with fructose activities.
> See the README for more targets/commands.
> * Works on both Fedora and Ubuntu latest distributions.
> * Pretty fast. 10 minutes for a full build (on my recent laptop and
> fast internet connection).
> * Constantly checked at http://buildbot.sugarlabs.org. We are building
> it and running basic integration tests, so you can easily see if the
> problem is local or things are temporarily broken. And if you have a
> local problem please report it!
> * Fully logged. So that if you need to report a bug you can easily
> include all the informations necessary to debug the problem.
> * Great for dogfooding. We are running sugar in a full X server so you
> can use it as your main desktop. And you can develop and run another
> sugar-build checkout from inside it.
> * Shell command to submit your patches for review (following process
> documented in the wiki), with very little setup/options required.
> * Test and contribute to the shell port using
> http://git.sugarlabs.org/~dnarvaez/sugar-build/shell-port

I was working on the shell-port using it, so thank you very much for
your effort Daniel!

Also, as "make run" opens a new X to display Sugar instead of an
emulator, is faster and more similar to the user experience in the
