Anybody knows what stops us from directly using the standard gnash
build in fedora?

If we really need to maintain our own gnash rpms, then I volunteer
(with my limited koji skills and time) to keep them updated.

Rob, you can be sure most people here understands what you feel. Just
wanted to say that, regardless of what Nicholas says, there will be
several hundreds of thousands of kids using Sugar/Linux to learn on
the XO before this year ends.

Not completely happy with that, we're working on making our software
available in other hardware platforms and for other deployments. This

Thanks for your hard work and support,
