Thanks, but what's wrong with Fedora SoaS on RPi?  It seems to work
fine.  For GSoC 2017, we wanted an image because we didn't have one,
but the situation changed.  I don't think we should make something we
already have.

Adding a Raspberry Pi plugin to Turtle Blocks isn't a large enough
task to be a GSoC project.  Remember the size; three months work.

A simple Raspberry Pi GPIO exerciser activity could be a week's work.

If you think it is a good idea, get started now!
