Thanks for your interest in the Debian packaging of Sugar!

Sugar 0.110 libraries, and up-to-date activities Browse, Chat, Image
Viewer, Jukebox, Log, Pippy, Read, Terminal, and Write, were all
recently prepared and if all goes well will be part of upcoming Debian

Anyone interested in helping out with packaging Sugar for Debian is most
welcome. You do *not* need to be an official Debian developer (we only
need some of those in our team to formally release our work, and I can
do that).

More information, both on how to follow the Debian progress more closely
and how to join, is at https://wiki.debian.org/Sugar

I see no need for tighter coordination between Debian and Sugarlabs for
this: Sugarlabs does a fine job publishing its code and announcing
releases.  What is needed is people able and interested in running
Debian and testing the packages - and people helping create packages - for
