[OLPC Engineering] [Techteam] B Test keyboards on eBay

Those keyboards are not usable with any OLPC laptop ever put
into production.

They are truly XO-1 B2 series keyboards.   My guess is that
someone was tasked with selling useless inventory...
They won't even work with XO-1 B3/B4 pre-production laptops.

I suggest that the Association contact EBay, and have the
sale pulled for (1) using our trademarked name and (2) offering
a product which doesn't work with any XO ever shipped.
