No need to wait. If you can help, feel free to make a start looking at
packaging GG in an RPM for the XO. This needs to happen, and that in
itself doesn't need many decisions or waiting for anyone. Have a look
at how Firefox (xpi?) packages are built and configured for Fedora 9,
and try to repro that ;-) If you hop on the fedora-devel mailing list,
and mention you are helping olpc, people will probably be keen to lend
a hand with packaging-related questions.

that's good to hear :-). OU will deliver based on what they started -
and that's a good thing for their users. It's not that compelling for
us as we already have excellent collab tools on the XO. Longer term, I
think they might hop on board the GG train too. We have to be careful
to make it useful for XO and for others too, so those others help us
