What do you mean by an update on the XO-1. If you mean as an update to
old versions of the OS such as 8.2 its very unlikely. The reason being
is the amount of QA to ensure it works cleanly and without issues and
that comes back to resources again. To push out an update such as that
to and older OS that is relatively old as its based on Fedora 9 which
is now EOL.

Well the plan in my opinion would be to get a stable release that is
signed so deployments can upgrade their XO-1 to a newer release
without needing to get developer keys or disable security.
