Please don't do this, at least without the formation of a well-backed
and fully official secondary arch that would allow further OLPC XO-1
release possibilities as there are now. It would be really painful to
lose support for the XO-1s in the world, 99.99% of which are running
Fedora.

official XO-1 support plans)
