Given that the idea seems to be to rebase to F10 for the next OLPC
release (which is what this will matter for), I'm not sure that trying
to keep any branches other than devel/F10 in mind here is really worth

That definitely sounds like something that we should be able to fix
pretty easily.

I don't think that untagging is going to be the case for OLPC-3 as
OLPC-3 is basically "done" as it's what was being used for 8.2.x. 

uberpackager should be something I can help with; I'll try to take a
