It's hard to answer without specifics, but if this is the case I
expect it's because of non-Fedora-on-XO projects slowing down rather
than because of anything negative that's happening in Fedora-land.

I think the only movement I'm aware of, though, has been in the
opposite direction -- thanks to recent work (in the linux-next kernel
tree) by Daniel and Andres Salomon, we're finally reaching the point
where standard (non-OLPC) Linux kernels are usable on the XO.  This has
historically been the largest roadblock against running other distros.
