Public bug reported:

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The intrepid packaging is very out of date since it hasn't been updated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.
