   My biggest current question is:  When on my XO I enter 'yum 
check-update' (using either the latest SoaS2 .iso or the latest 
~cjb/rawhide-xo .img), it tells me that there are more than 220 
packages at the rawhide repositories that are at a more recent 
version level than those provided by the system on my XO.

   Why don't the SoaS/~cjb distributions contain the latest rawhide 
packages ?

   If we are talking about 9.1.0, it would be nice if 'sound' and 
'moving pictures' worked in F-11 on the XO.  Currently they don't.

   I agree that 'suspend' (or even power-off on 'shutdown') would 
improve the usability of F-11 on the XO.
