Depends I guess on exactly what you mean by OLPC project.
And what your concerns are.
Has the WorldVistA project been officially endorsed by OLPC management?
Not yet. I'm hoping it will be soon.
Is it targeted for a garden variety linux PC or the OLPC XO. Definitely the
A commercial vendor already has a mono port that runs on Linux.
Will all work on this project be released under the GPL? Definitely!
The event is an OLPC Health Jam. There will be lots of other folks working
OLPC Health related projects, and if you decide you don't like us or our
you can defect and join another team working on Medical Sensor hardware,
If you attend the event, I'm sure you will find something fun,
Whether or not it is our project.
