My main reason for wanting to get F-14 running on the XO HW is so I can
start testing core components so if we do have issues there I can fix them
earlier rather than later. There might be an easier way to do this booting
of SD or similar. Open to ideas.

Busybox is mostly done for F-14, there's issues I'm still looking at for
F-13. I believe libabiword on F-13 is built. I'll look at csound shortly. I
can compile a special version for F-13 if you like as I suspect the lack of
java on F-13 is what's causing issues there and its likely not worth
spending lots of time on that for F-13.

When you want to work on full images for the XO, let me know and we'll

OK, from the diff I did when you were in London there didn't look to be
massive changes to it, mostly hacks to work around ARM side of things and
removal of missing packages.
