The distributions will. They already have development teams, release
cycles, release engineering teams, etc. This is why the idea fits
current-day OLPC very well, as OLPC no longer has the resources to do
As for packaging, at least for Fedora I guess that a group such as the
OLPC-SIG would make the package decisions and processes. And ideally
we'll want that streamlined and well documented so that deployments
can make their own customizations.
