We’re pushing to get the next release of Sugar into Fedora 11, and there are a handful of Sugar activities that could really use some love. Simon has done a great job of spelling out exactly what those activities are.
The nice thing about these activities is that they really are pretty simple to package. Python, nothing fancy. An experienced packager could probably bang through a typical activity very quickly, and maintenance going forward should be pretty simple.
Sugar only has a handful of core developers, and they are working hard on Sugar itself. Continued efforts to take packagers off of their shoulders are greatly appreciated.
And a special offer to our European friends: take ownership of a Sugar package, and then come to FOSDEM and I will ply you with food and liquor and tell you stories. 😉
