I'm not measuring myself but relying on the opinions of people which are
more into OLPC things then me, which is why I pointed out my feeling might
be misguided. For example John Watlington on this thread

Well, today Sugar development will take years to reach  most deployments,
thus I suspect it's not going to be useful to a large part of XOs which are
currently deployed. It would be interesting to know if and how fast we are
deploying new XOs today and that was my initial question. But if OLPC has
abandoned the XO-4, as many are suspecting, I think that's very relevant to
today development planning. Not that I expect anyone to say that clearly,
even if it is the case.

Anyway, from the very subjective perspective of a volunteer, if the XO was
the main target for Sugar, I would not be contributing to the project. OLPC
is showing no commitment to the XO and even less to Sugar and it's
community, of whose work it has benefited for years.
