The Sugar Labs Oversight Board "shall meet at least once per quarter to discuss various topics pertaining to the regular activities of the Sugar Labs Project and Sugar. (It is expected that more frequent meeting will be required in the early stages of the program.) The minutes to these meetings shall be posted publicly on the Sugar Labs wiki,"

Committee reports will be a regular part of the meetings.


The meeting is mainly targeted to Sugar Oversight Board, but everyone interested is welcome to join. It's primary purpose is to discuss general issues related to Sugar and the Sugar community; however, it is not intended as a replacement for the weekly developer meetings.

Questions for upcoming meeting

If you have an idea or a question to discuss with Oversight Board members gathered in one place at the same time, please add new entry to the list below, at least prior to ~48 hours before the scheduled time to let the meeting chairman form the final agenda and/or contact with you if so.

  • What are our biggest issues right now?
    • some ideas from technical pov, alsroot 05:36, 24 December 2010 (EST):
      1. Educators, designers and user experience specialists are the real core of the Sugar. Since, imho, Sugar is not a particular software project but an education related ecosystem.
      2. Lack of full-functional support of doers workflow.
