Have these bugs been fixed in a different way upstream?

Indeed. The actual bug may have been fixed some time ago, can't remember
the details.

Where do we need to use the default scaling of 72? How did the F14 +
0.90 OLPC builds solve this issue? dsd claims that there are no custom

For such small changes, feel free to edit the patches in place on the
Dextrose repo.

Sayamindu would now better. This is complicated shit!

Yes, the activities were appearing in backwards order (oldest first).

Using an activity is ok with me, but remember that backups must work
with the *current* schoolservers in deployments. No special server-side

I don't think Pootle can be made to work with code which isn't yet in

I think there's a new version of this patch from Anish with several
improvements. Someone should test it and replace it in Dextrose.

We discussed the necessity to support the old RDS protocol and we
concluded that it was useless if aslo gains support for the microformat
(which has just happened thanks to Aleksey).

So I think we should post a separate patch to remove all the code
implementing the RDS updater.

This may take quite some work. Would you like to take it?
