Agreed it all seems a bit mish-mash.

Is there a tracker or have they been added to the existing OLPC in
Fedora tracker bug. Makes it easier to see what the current status is.

Wicked! This is good work. Now i have a XO next on my list is booting
rawhide on SD.

The (your) page on the wiki is pretty close to my understanding, See
the email I sent you earlier, and the thread I started about moving
joyride to rawhide.

Well if the boot issues on XO on rawhide are fixed it seems we're
there in the basics. The question of using a base F-11 in replacement
of 9.1.0 as far as I'm aware comes down to the question of rainbow and
the associated changes to the boot process
(kernel/initscript/olpcrd/upstart/dbus) which unfortunately is down to
a few people that have sufficient understanding to be able to deal
with that.

>From my point of view that's sort of what I'm trying to do. I know I
can't deal with the whole rainbow/kernel stuff but where possible I'm
tracking/filing bugs testing etc. Compared to where we were at with
the rebase to F-10 when I first started to get involved I think we're
alot better off than we were.
