If you have OLPC XO-1 machines, you may want to try this build out on
one of the machines and see how significantly different it is from the
802 build from a while ago. This build contain both Sugar and GNOME.
Note that this build is signed, meaning you will NOT need a developer
key on a XO-1. Also note that this build is 10.1.2 Release Candidate
1, so good for testing and previewing features of a new build, but not
for production as yet :-)

This is the first release candidate for the 10.1.2 software release,
which runs on both XO-1 and XO-1.5.  It's a signed build.  We've bumped
the build number up to 850, so that it's higher than the previous signed
XO-1 build, which was 802.

Please test the build; we're particularly interested in regressions
from either the 8.2.1 release for XO-1 (build802) or the 10.1.1 release
for XO-1.5 (build206).  The only serious regression we know of from
either build is http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/9100 which we're unable
to reproduce, but we're working on obtaining laptops that are showing
the symptom so that we can debug it.

The build has idle-suspend turned on for both XO-1 and XO-1.5.  There
are some bugs affecting XO-1 idle-suspend only -- #10232 and #10233 --
which aren't regressions from 8.2.1, but are annoying enough that we'd
ship without idle-suspend enabled by default on XO-1 if we aren't able
to fix them soon.

We're going to aim for a final release in around two weeks from now,
and then immediately start on a 10.1.3 release with more feature
additions.  We didn't want new feature work to hold back the 10.1.2
release from XO-1 users waiting for a signed Fedora 11 release.


* kernel, #10270: assert wifi reset on XO-1.5 during boot
* sugar,  #9623:  another fix for Sugar behavior on disk full
* #10277: add python-alsaaudio package, which was present in 8.2.1
* Measure, #10248: ship Measure-31
* Record: ship Record-86
