I'm looking for help/volunteers to assist with the integration process 
of cerebro [1] into sugar. Cerebro offers a fast and efficient data 
transport and collaboration mechanism between tens of XOs in simple 
mesh. Using cerebro we can make the simple mesh scale as well as the 
current limit using school server WiFi and improve the collaboration 
experience in many application scenarios.

The integration can be done in either of these two ways:

1) Create a new telepathy connection manager that will act as interface 
between telepathy and cerebro. Some preliminary work already done by 
Michael Stone [2].

2) Add the necessary callbacks in cerebro that will allow it to act as 
presence service to sugar directly [3]. Cerebro provides the necessary 
functionality, but lacks several dbus callbacks.
