I believe that we want to build things using Fedora's tools -- we
actually would like Fedora to build the releases in future. So, this
means that pilgrim goes away, or that pilgrim gets adopted by Fedora
(the former, I guess!).

Some work may be needed on Fedora's build tools, but I was extremely
pleased to hear that Sugar-on-a-stick is being built with standard
Fedora tools, and we now have a (nearly?-)functional Soas XO image.

Details like security, signing and updates remain to be figured out, I
believe. For now, having a partially bootable image based on rawhide
will be a great start.

It would be best to use your time with OLPC-F11 preparation - I don't
see the current joyride going anywhere.
