Thanks for sharing!
You are quite welcome to commit the change yourself: We are a team here,
and you do have write access to the packaging, right?
Remember to check if relevant to apply same/similar change to the other
branches too. If so, just be lazy and close this same bugreport at all
branches (instead of the more correct of forking the bugreport and
>+Comment=Desktop enviornment first designed for the OLPC XO-1, written for use by children.
There's a typo in "environment".
Also, I suggest to use a shorter text, e.g. this one (based on first
line of long descriptions of most Sugar packages):
Comment=Graphical user interface aimed at children.
