What's the use case?

Is it that you want quick install, or that you have secured laptops?

For quick install:

- a small and simple installer on OLPC Wiki:



- the 0.102 page on Sugar Labs Wiki refers to a tool used by Australia
  that can be customised:


For secured laptops:

- get them unsecured,



- make a local deployment key, unlock and insert the key, then sign
  the Sugar Labs 0.102 build with it.

Yes, for OLPC I'm the signer, and so can Reuben.

I must reproduce a build before I can honestly sign it though.

I don't plan to sign or publish a Fedora 18 with Sugar 0.102, as this
thread opens with.

(I'm more interested in Fedora 20 with Sugar 0.102.  I'm struggling
with kernel or low userspace system stability with Fedora 20.  Every
XO-4 that I've tested on shows evidence of cache corruption or a dirty
page list writeback pause when using loopback block device.  This
prevents easy use of olpc-os-builder on XO-4.  I'm also stymied by
devel at lists.laptop.org being down.)
