Tomeu was quicker in his response than me...

As Simon said, the current plan for *both* the XO-1 and the XO-1.5 in
regard to Sugar support is to build upon the work that OLPC and the
Fedora communities are doing towards getting a stock Fedora
distribution running on the hardware. Sugar would be packaged on top
of that. The current expectation is that this would happen in the F12
time frame, coincident with the planned Sugar 0.86 release. As far as
porting Sugar 0.84 natively to the XO-1 hardware, this would require a
fair amount of work--beyond simply copying the Sugar files. I am
unaware of anyone working on that port. An interim solution is to run
Sugar on a Stick. Alternatively, DSD and the Paraguay team have done a
nice job of repackaging OLPC's 802 build to include some of the
improvements from Sugar 0.84.
