How do we start the process to join the OLPC
developers program?  Here is a list of Colors!
features I would like to see working on XO-1
and XO-1.5 platforms:

(1) wacom tablet support and investigate support
     for other tablet brands

(2) working videopaint mode os 10.1.3+

(3) improved collaboration support such as

     (a) fix color change problem
     (b) performance improvements to
         support larger common drawings
         (think class solar system project
          where each student could work on
          a separate planet/moon/...)
     (c) save as image
     (d) save as drw-ing
     (e) save as movie

BTW, I just got a Wacom Bamboo Pen and Touch for
$100 and it works with the linuxwacom driver for
later versions (not the one I sent you).

Once 10.1.3 is released, I plan to to a clean
build of the linuxwacom driver for a formal
release of Colors! to support it.  This will
include what is needed to install in the base
release to build/develop Colors! or wacome
related software.

I have two nieces with XO-1 and wacom tablets
so user feedback from that is already coming.
For me to test, I would need 2 XO-1.5's so that
the XO-1.5 to XO-1.5 collaboration could be

Do you have an XO-1.5 already?  What do you
think you would need as far as laptop hardware
