I understand that manufacturing units for official OLPC deployments are a
priority, but if GmGm is still a possibility it would be helpful to have
some sort of "order by" schedule. So if there were going to be a
manufacturing run that incorporated English keyboards, such that an
organization willing to order 100 units @ $300 each could obtain them after
that run, it would be helpful to know that this would be possible if they
ordered by (say) 3 months before that time. This would allow the
bureaucracy to grind out a timely purchase order, while still being driven
by the needs of the OLPC deployments.

"Always do right," said Mark Twain. "This will gratify some people and
astonish the rest."
