Please don't update this. I'm the sugar maintainer for pretty much all
of the sugar packages and we're shipping the version of Write for a
reason. When I tested it last week on F-19 the version of write was
working. Please coordinate with me any sugar changes you want to make.

We're planning on moving to the gtk3 version of Write once the abiword
team release a new version. It's apparently due soon but they've been
saying that for months. I would sooner stick with a version that works
than an unknown quantity this close to release.
