And we are very happy supporting the OLPCs too. We would like to continue
doing so in a sustainable way for active members. We should let them know,
we are developing a thematic fund structure for OLPC and other "investors"

I believe full transparency for technical contacts, year of intervention,
native language, number of machines, etc should be public information as
long as it is public education.
