It seems closer to F13 to me (it has the F13 version of Python, anaconda, ...)
For this reason you'll have to rebuild all the XS packages that
include python scripts as well.

Another option you may wish to explore is running CentOS6 with the
OLPC kernel on the XO. (but I haven't really thought this through,
might be missing something obvious)
