Great Job. I am writing a news in Fedora Project Website from Brazil.

One Question, what problem to put iso in official mirros?


Yeah, thanks! :)

To answer your question: Well, we haven't gotten approval from release engineering (yet), so this spin will neither be officially released together with F10 nor will it be built by rel-eng and that's why it won't be mirrored through the official mirrors. That's just the way it is, since we're a little bit late with this spin and aren't able to make it for F10.

Hi everybody,

I'm proud to be announce the availability of our Fedora Sugar Spin, which
incorporates the Sugar Desktop Environment on a Fedora Live CD.

So, what is this in specific? With this spin, you'll be able to run Sugar,
which is developed by Sugarlabs and the desktop environment used on the
OLPC, directly from a Live CD! You'll find several activities on the image
including most notably...

* sugar-browse - a web browsing activity based on xulrunner
* sugar-write - a word processor based on abiword

...among with several other applications introducing e.g. chat support.

We, the OLPC SIG, will be importing further activities into Fedora, which
might be installed using 'yum install sugar-*' at a later time.

Where can you get it? Easily, here:


Here's the SHA1 checksum, just if you're interested:

  f032ab45aa116c2728dcd2d676e29a5ee114fd1d  sugar-spin.iso

And what if you wanted to put it quickly onto your USB Key? Even easier!
You'll just need to grab Luke Macken's liveusb-creator, which already
includes support for the Sugar Spin. Here's the link:


Thank you everybody, who made this possible!
