You can count me in on that... I've been pushing for debian or ubuntu
to be the XS platform for a while, and I know Martin Langhoff sort of
feels the same way... but since so much work has already been done on
Fedora, we should see how feasable it is to make 2 concurrent XS
rollouts... but yeah
One more argument for a debian based XS: Debian supports various non-x86
architectures, which are good candidates for a compact, affordable, and low
power XS server:
- The mipsel based fuloong mini ( http://www.lemote.com/english/fuloong.html )
engineered by the chinese Jiangsu Lemote
For the porting efforts people can begin packaging the different software
tools, provided by the XS, without waiting for all the OS support.
For example the upgrade server was originally developed for debian.
Just a though. :).

Well, I received the AA's. As a quick test I plugged them into my F9
box, after using the olpc ifcfg-files as a template, with very little
fiddling I think I have them running under F9. I'll post the diff later.
More testing when the xo gets here, or my friend with a laptop.
What does need work
Firstly thanks for all the feedback. I want to ensure everyone knows this
isn't about undermining the great work already done on Fedora, but rather it
about I guess scratching an itch that a few people have. I think that where
possible we post the existing XS packages so that people can

Uruguay already uses a Debian-basex XS (which is quite different from
Martin's) and which includes some MAC-address filtering technology.
(They've also expressed great interest in expanding this technology into
a full 802.11i/802.1x/EAP/RADIUS

Additional notes on this
- idmgr needs a rewrite, badly

Would be interesting to know more on Uruguay's Debian based XS.. any links?
Besides, if I remember correctly, I guess Tony Pearson was also part of
that team or maybe not. I have mixed feelings about the current XS
builds, guess I'd have preferred the XS being a lot more efficient and
