About Butia:

Worked on changing drivers to make them more architecture-independent. (Alain Aguiar, Guillermo Reisch)

4. olpc/sugar-games

(manuq, aguz, dfrancis, flavio)


  • Will use sugar-games, not olpc-games

  • [ACTION] port physics (manuq)

5. Serial ports

mlanghoff taught on serial ports usage.

6. offline oob dextrose/xs

Find ways to build dextrose and XS images being offline (needed in deployments with connectivity difficulties, like Nepal and Rwanda)

(tony+quidam worked hard on it, still in progress..)

7. Sharing on journal bugs

When an activity is shared, it is not possible resuming it without sharing with the same user.

  • flavio + gonzalo worked on it. (please update next steps)

8. bug on events in sugar-games
