I started the project from a USB stick, that worked fine. Took about  
45 seconds to load on a B4.

The major problem is that after saving to the journal, it cannot be  
loaded again because the classes are missing. Apparently they were  
not saved in the project again. If you find the time it would be  
helpful to install an XO emulator so you can test under Sugar yourself.

The default pen width is only one pixel which is too thin for the XO  
display. Also, some fonts are too small, that may be fixed when we  
change the default fonts as in

There is no formal process yet.

Well it needs to work under Sugar and on the XO, and hopefully should  
be self-documenting. Adding some introduction in a help flap would be  
good I think. And we need to think about translating.
