Indeed. Kaleidoscope is nice and new. The two games are also nice, but not actually new, they originally come from Potsdam University and were uploaded by a kid from Uruguay:

No. The changesets should work fine on any XO or Sugar version. 

#600 is only a problem on XO running Sugar 0.84 (that is, Fedora 11)
#604 is a problem on all releases, but only on Fedora 11 you actually get an error

Basically I just need an okay from someone to push these to the 4.0 update stream. Then I can make a new release and rpm which makes it much easier to test for the others.

So if someone thinks these are at least safe to push, please say so ASAP. Time is running out.
