It would be great if its possible, but I fear that the time for code
freeze in OLPC has passed but the Gnash dev is about to release so its
an unfortunate timing for both camps.
What's possible for sure is that when the next version of Gnash comes
out, it can be pushed via Software Update.
I could be completely wrong though, but typical distribution releases
usually pick an upstream code freeze date, make necessary fixes, do
the testing for regression, then release with as few bugs as possible.
Then push for updates when fully tested.
