A quick note about this (coming up next weekend, so I'll be at this
rather than the Maker Faire booth, sorry Jack!). The XOs run on
Fedora, but as Grant mentioned below that there is a team within
Ubuntu working to make the sugar packages for Ubuntu and we'll be
fortunate to have one of the team admins for this, Luke Faraone, at
the conference.

So if you have interest in working on Sugar in Ubuntu, I highly
recommend considering this event. Note: There is a $35 registration
fee to cover venue and refreshment costs for the weekend.
