A lot of sugar was, but task-sugar isn't there.. or did it get a different name?

No... the import is not complete yet AFAIK. I tried to build the remaining packages some time ago, but each package has a dependency on several other unpackaged packages... in short, I gave up after 10 packages or so when they started failing to build. I'll give it another go "some time" towards the end of this year if no one else picks this up before then.

Well, I guess by that time a lot more of the packages it depends on will be in our repositories :)
add Mandriva "task-sugar" =>
task-sugar, platform for sugar educational software
Setting version to cauldron, because package requests will usually be done for cauldron first and then be available in next stable release
Zezinho, as you worked at sugar for some days, maybe you can also look at this one ? :D
I am working on sugar. task-sugar is in cauldron, but it cannot be installed while all other packages have not been imported. I am targetting 0.95.1 sugar for now, but it is a lot of work.
When everything will work, I can bring it back to Mageia 1.
Ok great, not sure we need importing sugar in mageia 1
I have successfully installed task-sugar 0.95.1 into a Mageia 2 alpha Gnome i586 live install to Hard Disk and into VirtualBox 4.1.4 for OSX
http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Community/Distributions/Mageia#Adding_Sugar_0.95.1_to_Mageia_2_alpha1 (details of install)
The only problem is that there is no web browser in the installed sugar
surf-115.xo (webkit) and browse-120.xo(hulahop) both fail to start due to missing dependencies.
task-sugar is installed as follows as there are 2 abiword files to choose from and the software installer refuses to install task-sugar due to this
* start sugar-emulator
urpmi task-sugar --allow-force
(select abiword (1) or (2) EN OR FR)
Thank You for including sugar in Mageia 2 alpha.

hulahop code does not build with current xulrunner. Both fedora and debian use an old build, so I am waiting for upstream work to submit hulahop.
I didn't knew surf-115.xo (webkit), I may package that, but have no time for now...
Here are the links to surf
"A browser based on webkit-gtk for the sugar platform"
http://people.sugarlabs.org/Tgillard/Surf-115.xo (same as ,zip I think)
Here is a rpm also:
can you provide the src.rpm ? so we could adapt it for mageia and import it.
i will look : http://ftp.upjs.sk/pub/fedora/linux/development/rawhide/source/SRPMS/surf-0.4.1-3.fc15.src.rpm
i just adapted it and imported into mageia.
I have not found it in Mageia Contol center/ Software management
I searched on sugar; surf; sugar-surf-activity and could not find it
Using Mageia 2 alpha1 install to HD and all updates
Mirror lists 1;3;5;7;11;13;21;23;27;29 enabled
where can I find it?

I had done the same here locally, but it does not start in sugar, so I didn't submit it. Did you test?
I just did a drag drop install of surf-115.xo to the sugar journal from a 2nd USB
Surf does not start as it requires webkit-gtk to run.
from sugar-log application:
file "/home/live/Activities/Surf,activity/webtoolbar.py" ,line 29
from sugar,_sugarext import AddressEntry
Import error cannot import name AddressEntry.
In sugar root terminal:
Command: urpmi task-sugar --allow-force
Installs 26 rpms
Surf is not there
Just installed sugar on KDE live i586 install,
Why do the individual sugar-packages no longer show in install software?
* task-sugar (will not install due to several applications having missing dependencies)
Had to use "urpmi task-sugar --allow-force" (which installed 80/90 packages)
this installed a number of activities and allows booting to sugar directly
we need a working browser badly.
I imported sugar-toolkit-gtk3 to mageia cauldron, and now sugar-browser-activity depends on it instead of hulahop which was dropped upstream as far as I have understood.
But build fails because of a link error that I don't know how to fix. Help please ;-)
This one is in cauldton
Mageia 3 beta3 Live DVD-Gnome-x86_64 in VirtualBox
task-sugar 0.96.0 2.mga3
sugar-emulator 0.98.3 2.mga3
Both of them start but display only a white screen.
Mageia-2 has task-sugar 0.95.1 and sugar-emulator 0.95.3
and works nicely 
What's the status of this bug in Mageia 3/Mageia 4/Cauldron?
Mageia 3 had still a bugged SUGAR.
Mageia 4 has a fully functionel SUGAR (I compared it to Fedora spin Sugar, we only package a few less apps for now).
So I close this bug.
