We have already made great progress in that direction. Simon did a
great job releasing .82. You are taking the lead on future development.
At this stage, it is pretty inevitable that OLPC would want their devs
to focus on support rather then future development.
As long as you are clearly communicating the roadmap for the next
release, we can:
1. Help our current contributors become more productive.
2. Engage new voluntary developers.
3. Engage stakeholders to hire developers to work on Sugar.
