Also related to the meeting: I got a note from James Cameron, that
some of you may find useful. Here it is, verbatim:



Sorry, I can't make it.  For me it would be 3am on Sunday morning, and
I have interesting tasks later in the day.

I work for OLPC.

Lately I've been working on a combined Android and Sugar build for the
XO-4 laptop, on request from a deployment.

More detail at http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Android

People with an XO-4 can get involved by installing it on an SD card or
on the laptop itself, and giving it a going over.  We plan another
release in the next few days.

This week I've been working on a new camera driver for the XO laptop,
which was forced by end-of-life of a camera sensor we had been using
in production.  This gives us a chance to include a few wireless and
firmware fixes.

More detail at http://wiki.laptop.org/go/13.2.1

People can get involved by testing the builds as they become
available.  An XO-1 build for use on an SD card is available now.

In the background I look after the Wiki, the development
infrastructure, and respond to developer key requests for XO laptops.

Have a great time at the event!
