This collection has been extended to XO-1 and XO-1.5, and then moved
to the OLPC dropbox for Fedora 18 development builds:

Gonzalo suggests this won't break them.  I'm interested in knowing how
to test that.

Fixed if one uses olpc-os-builder instead of applying the packages to
13.2.1 or earlier.

(The font sizes and so forth are set by the builder, not by the Sugar

This is done; now we have a builder that can combine Fedora 18 with
Sugar 0.104.  See the 13.2.3-proposed branch in my olpc-os-builder
repository, at 


I chose an activity group based on the group that is to be in 14.1.0,
since these are all recent releases through ASLO.

I've made a build for XO-1.5 and tested each activity, and everything
works.  I've not tested XO-1, XO-1.75 or XO-4.

A build for XO-1 with SD card might be interesting to people still
using XO-1 in the field.
