I can work on making a screencast tutorial that walks through the
Sugar Labs installation process, from getting Virtual Box to installing
Sugar OS. We can make the tutorial useful for both users and developers.
We also need to add a resolution to the recent installation problems with
sugar-build due to latest unstable 'Browse' release'. I think I can do that
if anyone could grant me with write access to
I can also translate the articles on the developers page at
https://developer.sugarlabs.org to Hindi language.
