Sorry, I wanted to post it toplevel.

Witch the recent disbanding of the development team I simply cannot see 
what will happen to the XO development. I mean that 8.2.1 will be 
released and 9.1.0 is dropped but what I do not understand is what will 
happen with all the development for 9.1.0? What I heard is that those 
will be pushed upstream (whatever that means) but it is not clear if 
reporting bugs or talking about button layouts on the game pad will 
result in a new software release or is just a waste of time. What I mean 
is that should I also subscribe to some Fedora devel list (note that I 
do not know sh*t about linux development, packaging or anything like 
that) to keep informed or what?

Currently I am writing a nice activity which teaches kids what to do 
when alien spaceships attacks Earth and it will take some time to 
finish. What should I do next?

Can some insider comment on these issues please?
