In order to support deployements activities the standard SOAS image should allow a limited degree of personalization for basic settings.
Benefit to Sugar
Our users speak many languages and with Sugar on a Stick, deploy on many different--unpredictable?--keyboards. This feature would allow them to set their language on initial boot rather than having to wait until they have completed the intro dialog. (Note that on an XO, the manufacturing data is used to set these fields. This feature would be used to override those settings.)
Actually will be mostly a documentation effort - no impact on code in this phase.
How To Test
Users will have the opportunity to work in their native language from the initial experience of Sugar rather than having to initially wade through English-language menus.
If we don't complete this feature, it can be left out. Nothing else depends upon it.
This is common practice now on several GNU/Linux distros, e.g., Ubuntu 9.10
