I think there is a real misunderstanding of the school server software.

Daniel Drake updated XS-0.6 to a CentOS 6.2 base because the Fedora base 
was obsolete. There is no need for continued development of XS at this 
time, it is functional and stable.

XSCE appears to be a substantially different development aimed, at 
several objectives:
     enable XO hardware to act as the school server
     support the ARM platform
     provide gui support for basic system administration
     modularize server functions so that deployments can pick and choose 
which capabilities to include.

I don't think we need or want an unstable XS. The existence of CentOS 
points to the difference between server and client software development
