Hi Nicolas!

welcome to the list! if you are in Buenos Aires, there is a nice 'sugarlabs'
group of people getting together periodically and doing some development
work (mostly on XO side... - Gonxzalo and Gustavo CC'd)

On the XS side, there are some (currently delayed) plans to port the
packages that make XS special from F9 to F11 (old, but in sync with XO). In
the process we plan to improve the approach so that it is better abstracted
-- we think we can make the packages good enough that a simple recompile of
the srpm can run on RHEL6/CentOS6 as well.

Jerry Vonau and I have been discussed the above plans, and Jerry is hoping
to start working on ti in earnest in a week or two. I will try to join him
