Congratulations. 2100 is starting to look pretty good. Over all,
traffic on activities.sugarlabs.org in increasing by about 25% per
months. Not a bad growth rate....

What ships with the xo is and OLPC decision. The next thing would be
to lobby the SoaS team to include FoodForce2 on the upcoming SoaS

We have nothing formal yet. Will you do any beta releases? I'll add
FoodForce to the recommended list.

At this point the biggest visibility grabber is a steady stream of
updates and bug fixed to activities.sugarlabs.org. Whenever
activities.sugarlabs.org is updated a notice is sent to iaep and dev.
This stream of fixes is very reassuring to testers that the develop
side is fixing what they report.
Another great step would be to contact the testers though Tabitha
Roder <tabitha at hrdnz.com> .
They do a great job identified good bugs.
Yet, another step would be to set up a official test day like the soas
did a couple of days ago.
Hope that helps
