Peter, Your remark does not contain any specific questions so it's a little hard for me to give you a coherent update. Instead, I'll make some general remarks in the hope that they will elicit further questions. 1. As has been recently pointed out, Rainbow is not currently in use on any Sugar platform later than sugar-*-0.84 (i.e. OLPC's 8.2.*). However, some have wondered whether it might make a reappearance in sugar-*-0.86. To speed this outcome, I have prepared new versions of rainbow (0.8.*) which are easy to install and test on many different platforms. See http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Rainbow for current status information. (I await further rainbow-0.8.* questions, comments, concerns, and test results with particular interest.) 2. There is little change in the state of olpcrd and olpc-update. Daniel Drake did some nice work in February to make the toolchain support OFW-hosted key overlays and, so far as I know, is happily serving Paraguay-signed leases and software updates over Paraguay's test schools' wifi network. (Dan -- could you please update http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Security with links to a description of how you've deployed these technologies?) (Peter -- Did you have some specific question about the technology or about its inclusion [or lack thereof] in Fedora?)
