[Debian-olpc-devel] Developing Ubuntu on Alioth

I have been talking to Luke and Manu about how to take the next steps
with Ubuntu Sugar Remix.

I am not sure if this has been done before... but I would like to ask
if it would be possible to develop the USR packages as git branches to
the Debian sugar package on Alioth.  When looking at the tooling of
bzr vs git, it appears that there are significant long term advantages
to sharing the tooling with upstream.  My stance is that the tooling
should make it as easy as possible to stay in sync with upstream.

Does this sound sane?  If so, would it make sense for Luke to write up
document for Jonas' review on how this could be accomplished.

For a rough timeline
1. We (the seeta team) are communication via email, google chat, and
the #Seeta channel.
2. On the 24th we will be shifting all technical communication to the
sugarteam and debian-olpc mailing lists.
3. As we become confident in that, we will shift from google chat to IRC.
