Special Interest Group mailing list.]
The engineers at OLPC are busy building an educational experience for
the children of the world. These engineers are basing their excellent
work on Fedora.
Their time is stretched perilously thin. Every hour an overworked
OLPC engineer spends doing Fedora work is an hour they could be
spending doing something else. Those of use who use Fedora and want
to help can have a huge, direct, and immediate impact on the success
of the OLPC project. Naturally, this is not limited to Fedora devs
and users - *anyone* interested is more than welcome to participate
The mission of the OLPC SIG is to provide the OLPC project with a
strong, sustainable, scalable, community-driven base platform for
Some immediate goals:
1. To identify and take responsible ownership of as many OLPC base

2. To maintain an excellent Sugar environment for Fedora, including a
dedicated Sugar spin.
3. To identify useful opportunities for collaboration (infrastructure,
Meetings to work on these goals will be called soon. If you are
interested in participating, please join the Fedora OLPC mailing list

So, here's an excellent opportunity to make a difference. I hope you
will be joining me on this effort.
