Jani Monoses who did the hardy packaging is on our mailing list,
although he has little time for involvement. I'll ask him for his input

I've been holding back on advertising the team and the tasks to recruit
more people to get involved, until we have the FFE and some packages,
but I'll see who I can recruit to assist.

Sugar feature freeze exception
You received this bug notification because you are a member of Sugar
Team, which is subscribed to sugar in ubuntu.

Status in “sugar” source package in Ubuntu: Incomplete

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The intrepid packaging is very out of date since it hasn't been updated since hardy.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