I think I understand you now. I misunderstood as "olpc-update debian"
will now install DebXO instead of Debian.

I believe that Debian will only officially support hardware that is
generally available to the public. I suspect that since G1G1 has been
dropped for the future, it is highly unlikely that there will be
official support in Debian for XOs. :-(

You are probably referring to the dcon unfreeze change.
I thought that perhaps you had more insight than that. Very well, I
will just continue to track the git of DebXO then, as that seems to be
the best source of information at the moment.
