FWIW, this decision was made through an OLPC-driven process. Those of
us attending Sugar Camp read about it and while some of us have
participated in discussions on IRC and mailing lists, it is not being
discussed/decided here.

BTW, it is great to have occasional face-to-face meetings. It is a
high-bandwidth medium of exchange. But our decisions are made in
public forums.
