Cool, looking forward to try them out!

The next build will have the latest sugar. We actually have everything 
on the sugar side already built, we are blocking on some X packages issues.

The build has the latest rpm we build. In the past we have been a bit 
slow at updating sugar, mainly because of the dependencies changes which 
required a consistent amount of time to be solved. I expect this to 
improve though. Also when you need a new sugar in the build feel free to 
ping me.
