[Olpc-open] Status of MaMaMedia and Avallain

Their wiki seems dead. November 30, the date stated as the next milestone,
is past -- what is the status? When I look at the "blocker bugs" it isn't
clear why they block a release. Why does language selection have to be
dynamic, for example? Couldn't versions be packaged for individual
countries? This stuff isn't present in the latest vmware image I downloaded
(649), and when I tried to install by browsing to the .xo link on the olpc
wiki I got a stalled activity that required a reboot of the vm to clear.

The activities in the mamamedia group seem most appropriate for creating
early literacy content and that is what I am trying to put together for my 4
g1g1 laptops, which are destined for a kindergarten in the South Bronx. Is
there a mailing list for development activity?

Also, the OLPC wiki tells me that Avallain is somehow the plan for
supporting literacy contentn the OLPC, but I couldn't find any info on their
website  There is mention of developing an open source version.
Does anyone reading this list know about these content issues?
