Sugar 0.87.2 is in Rawhide and a good base set of packages has been built and is available. A basic comps package group has been created, so 'yum groupinstall sugar-desktop' works, too.

Detailed Description

We want to provide the new version of the Sugar desktop environment as well as more activities to allow further building upon the collaborative environment.

Users curious about the Sugar interface can test out Sugar on an existing Fedora system by selecting the Sugar environment from their display manager.

Developers interested in working on the Sugar interface or writing activities can have a development platform without needing an XO laptop.

Benefit to Fedora

Downstream projects and users will directly profit from this feature, as it brings the latest and greatest bits from the Sugar community for education into Fedora. By making Sugar more readily available, it's easier for users to play with it, become involved, and contribute back.

Scope

  • Build updated Sugar packages
  • Build useful Sugar activities (tracking list)
  • Work on a spin, which isn't blocking this feature, though

Test Plan

Select Sugar as an option on the gdm screen for your account, log in, and use Sugar. Internet access through Browse should be possible. This will require the @sugar-desktop group to be installed, but should otherwise be straight-forward.

User Experience

Only noticeable by those wanting to use Sugar.

Dependencies

No further dependencies, thanks to the original work here.

Contingency Plan

None necessary. Many of the packages will be included in Fedora, but will be less useful without the work done to tie them together.

Documentation

Release Notes

We'll have some stuff here eventually...
