hey guys! Good news, I was able to get in touch with John Dowdell of
Adobe (email below).

I'll coordinate with Reuben & Ed for the info needed by Adobe to
improve Flash & AIR behavior on the XOs. *crosses fingers*


"> Some stuff OLPC needs to get Flash & AIR running better on the XO-1 & 1.5:
> -installer tweaks -> customizing installation to play better when
> installing files on the XO's modified filesystem
> -performance tweaks, hopefully some hardware acceleration
> -wrappers for Flash & AIR to work with OLPC's Sugar system
> ...  the camera of the XO-1 doesn't work quite properly with Flash 10
> and would need a few tweaks with the Flash player to run well.

Hi Carlos, thanks for the word. I could forward this among the Player
and AIR teams, but they'd likely need more information before being
able to reply. Is there any public documentation on the current blocks
on the project?

Here's the best page I know of, but it doesn't reveal what additional
help they're seeking:

I'll also check with Mike Melanson when I'm back in the office
tomorrow, to see if he has additional perspective.

Any way I can learn more, so I can improve the chances of a successful response?
