I think doing a release is more work than you would think... but nice idea!

Here's a list of things deployed in Nepal, Paraguay, both, or soon :)
Some of these are hacks, lower quality than you'd want to see in an
official build, but very valuable at the same time.

http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/7531 (fixed in new bootanim)

first boot "upgrade your activities" notice is v confusing for first time users
sed -i -e 's/\.sugar-update/\.sugar-update-hackedout/g'
${pristine}/etc/init.d/olpc-configure

upgrade to abiword-2.6.5-2.olpc3 (built ages ago but never shipped by
OLPC) to fix problems with scripts such as nepali and arabic
(there are still a couple of nepali bugs so watch out for a -3 release
in the next week or so)


That's all I can think of for now
