As a procedural point -- while it might be a little bit of a time cost,
can people please make it a point to file a bug against Fedora in
bugzilla, version devel and have it block FedoraOLPCDelta with a
description of what the reasoning behind the forked package is? This
will help us to keep track of them and reduce this delta over time.
It'll also help get Fedora package maintainers involved and thinking
about some of the issues that impact OLPC
This shouldn't take long and in the long run, it should save everyone
time as hopefully it will reduce the need for such forked packages in
