Some individual sync requests have been filed before, but never tended
to: bug 242237, bug 246017, bug 255850.

Which of the other bugs on
https://bugs.launchpad.net/~sugarteam/+packagebugs would be fixed by
this?

Sugar feature freeze exception

Status in “sugar” source package in Ubuntu: New

Bug description:
Binary package hint: sugar

Sugar (http://sugarlabs.org/) is the UI from One Laptop Per Child that has spun off into an upstream project. 

The intrepid packaging is very out of date since it hasn't been updated since hardy. Jani Monoses did that packaging but hasn't been able to work on this. We have formed a Sugar Team to work on packaging (see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SugarTeam) but we are quite behind on this.

There has been a major release of Sugar recently, which we want to land in intrepid.

We want to sync Sugar's 0.82.x packages from debian, according to this list: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SugarTeam/Packages - there are a few minor packages which debian doesn't have, where we do have updated packaging in a PPA: https://launchpad.net/~chapter78/+archive

None of the packages we want to touch are dependencies of other things - this is a very self-contained project at this stage.

Please grant a Feature Freeze exception for Sugar so we can get this updated.
