We just noticed (well, upstream put our nose on it ;) ) that we're using 
the "old" repo (the instructions on the wiki were outdated, I've fixed

I got quite frustrutated trying to get Sugar to work, but your positive 
response is quite encouraging, thanks!

Thanks a lot for (both) your efforts, as well!
