When you install the Write activity on Fedora or Ubuntu, the AbiWord
library is installed automatically through package dependencies.

On latest Fedora and Ubuntu the version of AbiWord is 3.0.2.  [0]

On OLPC OS for NL3 and ED20 models, which is based on Ubuntu 18.04,
the version of AbiWord is 3.0.2.  [2]

On OLPC OS 13.2.10 for XO-1, XO-1.5, XO-1.75 and XO-4, which is based
on Fedora 18, the version of AbiWord is 2.9.3.  [1]

Once the Port to Python 3 for Write is merged [3], development for
OLPC XO will move to the branch "fedora18".  Any workarounds for old
versions of AbiWord can be removed from "master" branch.
