 Replying to [ticket:1636 martin.langhoff]:

 some content (and exit activity)

 > Sugar 0.84 has fixed an old problem (the Journal going to la-la-land if
 the .olpc.store/inded DB was corrupt) by completely ignoring the metadata
 > Now, the metadata DB had a role in the workflow I describe above. Has
 anything taken that role? Maybe the new mechanism isn't kicking in
 correctly? Does it work on 0.86 somehow? (Maybe we can backport it?)

 since 0.84, non-ds sources treated in RO mode, initial 0.84 releases just
 failed, in 0.86 and last 0.84 patches(afaik) do not fail

 For 0.88, was proposed feature

 ml discussion

 in my mind, having unified sugar bundles much preferable then bunch  of
 special files that accompany Journal objects on USB sources(and not only).
