Hi Tom,

do you want to hack on the Sugar shell or only in a new activity of you?

If the former, I recommend that you go the sugar-jhbuild way. Both
Fedora 10 and Ubuntu Intrepid are well supported, but other recent
distros also should work with more or less tweaking.

If the later, just install Fedora 10 and then install the sugar
packages. You can run sugar in sugar-emulator and code and test there
your activities.

And you are most welcome to join us in sugar-devel and the irc channel
#sugar in Freenode.
