Yep, I can help out with that. I've been helping gregdek with getting
some of the OLPC changes upstream so as to get as much as possible
into mainline Fedora so the OLPC guys can concentrate on more
important stuff. I've got a list of most of the issues from 8.2 but
arrived on the scene a little late to have much impact there. So now
that we're rebasing to F-10 I'll be working to minimise the
requirement of package forks.
