Thanks Joe. It would be sad if someone is referring people to us with
the wrong expectations, but I've heard it does happen.
I'm thinking also it is a translation problem; both of international
English, meaning of an open source project, and cultural expectations.
The questions that ask for our direction always seem to come from the
same geographical range.
Perhaps our Sugar Labs members who come from the same range should
suggest changes to wording of our "How to get started" guides to
compensate for whatever hidden message is out there.
