There have been a number of excellent "9.1 proposals" posted to devel@ and sugar@ recently.  Since OLPC seems to have cancelled [http://wiki.laptop.org/go/XOcamp_2 XOcamp], here's a proposal for an alterna-conference during the same time period.
Participation is open to all Sugar and OLPC volunteers and employees!
For the '''XOCamp-2''', originally scheduled for November but now postponed to January, [http://wiki.laptop.org/go/XOcamp_2 see here].
