things are looking good so far, we already have all the models booting into
sugar 0.101 with wif apparentlyi working. I would like to take a step back
and understand a bit better where we want to go with this. Some random
thoughts and questions.

* To really understand how much work is left I think we need some good
testing, especially on the hardware related bits. I expect there will be
lots of small things to fix, but it would be good to understand as early as
possible if there are roadblocks. I'm a bad tester and I've never used the
XO much, so I'm often not sure what is a regression and what is not... thus
helping with this would be particularly appreciated.
* Which deployments are planning to ship 0.102 soon and hence are
interested in this work? I know of AU. Maybe Uruguay?
* Do we need to support all the XO models?
* Should we contribute the olpc-os-builder changes back to OLPC or fork it?
I don't know if OLPC will do any active development on the linux side of
things, if not maybe better to turn this into a sugarlabs thing.
* Are interested deployments using olpc-update? If I'm not mistake AU is
* Do we care about maintaining the GNOME "dual boot"? I'm afraid we do, but
I want to make sure.
* As I mentioned in some other thread I'm interested in setting up
automated  builds from sugar master. I have some vague plan of what it
would look like and wrote bits of it. The basic idea is that you would push
changes to github and get images automatically built. I think this is good
for upstream testing but the same infrastructure could be used by
deployments. Are people interested in using this?
