Fedora OLPC tasks/agenda

Active (Assigned) Tasks

Task Name Owner Priority Target Date Status/Notes
Running Fedora + desktop directly from XO nand GregSmith 1 Weekly update Looks like we've got a big challenge ahead of us to get Fedora working directly on the NAND of an XO. Discussion thread at
Getting a list of packages for F10 rebase Gregdek 1 ASAP We need a list of OLPC-4 packages that we need to get upstream into F10 and devel.
Packaging Sugar activities erikos 1 Weekly update We need to closely track to the packages listed on the [Sugarlabs roadmap] with the package requests that are tracked on the [Fedora wishlist page] Currently packaged Sugar stuff can be found [here]. erikos will own the wishlist here.
Fedora Live CD for Sugar sdziallas 1 Weekly update Sugar spin is official! sdziallas continues to build new versions as new packages come in.
Installation path JimGettys 2 On Hold What's involved in installation onto internal NAND? What's involved to be able to use olpc-update? What needs to be done to ensure wear levelling? Deferring this question, since our current focus is not on installing to NAND, but to SD card.
Figuring out how to create small localized spins SebastianDziallas, gettys 2 On hold How can we make small images by cutting out unnecessary language info, and make particular builds that are customized for particular languages? Sebastian and Jim continue to work on this.

Completed Tasks

Task Name Mentor Priority Date Completed Details
Joining Fedora testers to OLPC Friends In Testing MelChua 1 18 December 2008 OLPC continues to need help testing, and since we have The Seventy who tested Fedora on OLPC, we're going to try to leverage their help in building the FIT team. Mel will put together a recruitment pitch, and gregdek will contact The Seventy. Brian Pepple has volunteered to lead.
Getting NetworkManager 0.7 working properly in Sugar erikos 1 11 December 2008 Since Sugar 0.82 assumes NM 0.6, and Fedora 10 carries NM 0.7, there is some remediation work that needs to be done here for Sugar+networking+Fedora 10 to work together smoothly. erikos has gotten enough of this done that Sugar 0.82 basically works in F10.
Developer keys on G1G1 machines? EdMcnierney 1 December 2008 Default XO security policy dictates that users who get a Fedora SD card will need a developer key to boot from it. We must document this clearly for users; when SD cards ship, they will have pretty graphics explaining exactly what must be done. Karlie is actively working on docs for this.
Landing page content for SD key collateral GregDeKoenigsberg 1 December 2008 We need to have a landing page that tells users everything they need to know: common issues, how to get help, etc., etc. Our landing URL:
