These are great news! Maybe we can do  chat to coordinate?
The next OLPC AU image will be based on F20 too,
then we can join forces...

Ok, I will look at that.

Ok, I need check how will work with the AU images, where we use
patched rpms. I will try to make it work with the standard (dropbox)
if possible.

True. I preferred start with the same group of activities and remove Gnome.
In general deployments do not include Gnome in the XO1
(at least, Uy and Py don't do it)
and request for activities as TuxPaint and TuxMath. I am not a fan of them,
but the idea is make something useful.

Uploaded now. There are info about how to install them, right?
