It's supposed work on Ubuntu. If it doesn't for you post the errors you are
getting and we will get it fixed.

I never tested but you should be able to get sugar-build working on the XO
itself. If you give it a try and run into issues let me know. I'm pretty
sure I'll be able to make it work.

Everyone is on the fast track these days! :)

Patches gets feedback pretty quickly. If you are making big changes and are
worried about conflicts, or if you would like some early feedback to know
that patches are going in a good direction,  just post a note here or in
irc. Someone will look at them.

Give it a try. I know this used to be an issue (I run into it myself, I
have a big set of bitrotten patches that never landed completely), but I
don't think it happens anymore these days.
