I recently attended the SF OLPC monthly meeting, and Alex Kleider was
asking for help getting the wifi going.

So before I offered to help, I came home and downloaded the image that I
had worked on back in March (almost forgotten). (just dd if=<img>
of=>/dev/sdb or whatever> bs=4M)

When I just went to the docs on our git repo, I experienced the bad links.
The link to the available image is at
http://download.unleashkids.org/xsce/downloads/installer/rpi2/  and the
inadequate documentation is at
https://github.com/XSCE/xsce/blob/master/docs/INSTALL.rst in the middle of
the page.
