It's a real deployment, but not nationwide. The numbers I hear keep
changing everyday, but the initial agreement was for 5K laptops in
Florence + 5K laptops in a twin city. There are additional laptops
for Brescia, Rome, and a mini-G1G1 that the ministry major for ICT
wanted to promote.
The deployment team will be mostly Torello and Francesco; Giulia and
myself will help marginally -- or substantially, if we find the time.
I'm not concerned about Italy remaining isolated, because of course
the next OLPC release will catch up with Italian translation, and
will therefore end this mini-fork. How can we make sure SKU 23 comes
with this little mfg-data change from Quanta?
