Get Sticks into Schools
Deployments all over the world need many different types of help as they work through the Sugar on a Stick deployment process - we need help building resources for all deployments to use, supporting those deployments, and helping new deployments start, as well as gathering stories and feedback from deployments so that we can make the next version of Sugar on a Stick even better.
Some things you can do to help:
Contributors are the lifeblood of the Sugar on a Stick community - we work hard to bring a playful mindset of teaching, learning, and meaningful work to the children we aim to reach, and we aim to keep that mindset in our own work and community as well. Welcoming and teaching new contributors or all types, building the resources they need, and teaching them how to empower others in their turn is one of the most important things you can do; it is everyone's responsibility to help build our community, one person at a time.
Some things you can do:
We have weekly meetings on IRC - see Sugar on a Stick meetings for more information, including logs from past meetings. Attending a meeting is a great way for newcomers to get started.
Our release schedule is based on the Fedora release schedule.

While the projects listed below are not part of Sugar on a Stick, we watch them closely and try to work with them when possible (or at least we're trying to learn!)
- For deployments lacking easy Internet access, one can turn a computer into a Sugar on a Stick Creation Station. The Sugar Creation Kit is a downloadable DVD which includes the materials you need to create Pineapple sticks and to install additional Activities, along with documentation and previous versions of Sugar on a Stick.
- Other portable Sugar distributions - Live USB work based on other Linux distributions.
- The undiscoverable is an unofficial FAQ for tips, tricks, and solutions to common problems that may otherwise be tricky to find. These are being considered for inclusion in the official SoaS documentation.
