Thanks for the clarifications José!
In Ubuntu, squeak is in multiverse - the non-free arhive component so dfsg
is not an issue for it.
I know etoys is not dependent on sugar, but for sugar they have an activity
that wraps and calls etoys.
It looks like that is the only thing that needs doing by the olpc team, the
rest is pure squeak.
I am Cc-ing the Edubuntu developer who took care of Squeak in Ubuntu just to
keep him posted even though he is busy too (Hi Jordan!)
PS: as I am not subscribed to debian-olpc-devel please keep me in the cc as
well in future posts. Thanks.
