I agree, well done.  Why is it everybody named Daniel does development
so fast?  ;-)

Contribute, please.  In whatever way is best for you and your users;
(a) patches by mail, (b) fork and pull requests, (c) an account on

I also don't know if OLPC will do any active development on the Linux
side of things.  It is more likely now than yesterday, because FZT's
new requirements may cascade into work by OLPC.

UY is not.  It is very useful feature though, small changes possible
without reinstalling every laptop.


Also, I agree with Jon Nettleton, while there is substantial risk
continuing with Fedora, with reduced opportunity, there are greater
opportunities with other distributions.

However, the deployments are an installed base, and may not be
interested in switching at this time, unless a compelling reason

So by all means, look for compelling reasons and ways to reduce
development effort.  Meanwhile, work with Fedora specialists.


In past 24 hours the activity caused 14 unsubscribe on devel@, with
699 remaining.  Good sign.
