[Dextrose] Dextrose 1 TODO

There are still a few bugs I'd like to get fixed before Monday, but
things generally look good.

The biggest missing piece is the microformat activity updater. Anish
submitted the patches 4 days ago, but so far nobody could find the time
to review and integrate his work. Tincho and I are worried that there
won't be enough time left to stabilize this feature in time for the
Paraguayan release.

Let's review our TODO list:

Still todo. Yesterday, Manusheel expressed interest in working on this.

These notes are a marketing tool than a real necessity, so they're not
blocking release.

Todo. Hopefully I'll be able to do it this week-end.

Done. All the bugs I found in the field are filed in the Sugar Labs' bug
tracker, marked with the "dextrose" keyword. I added a page in Trac's
wiki summarizing the current status:


Note: as I'm very busy with field testing and bug fixing, I don't have
much time for trac gardening. Some tickets may be outdated and many
older tickets related to Dextrose may not be flagged with the "dextrose"
keyword yet.

Started on Wednesday, although in Daniel Ortellado instead of Teniente
Farina. I'm going to Caacupe today to collect feedback from both the 5th
and 6th grade testers.

I gave the latest image to Jorge on Wednesday, but I don't know if it
was tested by anyone in the office.

No longer needed, it seems that Nepal won't be upgrading their machines
anytime soon.

Done. To clarify: I'll roll RC images next Monday (Aug 15) and Tincho
will hand them to Quanta on Aug 20 to preload them on the XO-1.5 units
that will be shipped in October.

If everything goes smoothly, the RC images should become the release
with no further changes. Changing things without repeating classroom
testing is risky, so we'll do it only in case of a real emergency.

We'll work on this together next week from Montevideo.

Me and David should spend some time together this week-end to discuss
all the gory details.
