Addons.mozilla.org also known as amo looks pretty promising as a 'one
stop' location for activities.

In terms of work flow the process for a developer is:
1. Activity authors register their activity with amo.
2. Author uploads latest release into sandbox.
3. Reviewer verifies new upload works correctly and publishes the
4. Return to 2.

All of this happens through a nice set of web interfaces.

We have all seen how amo works from an end users perspective.

	The amo code is pretty dense.
 	The amo code is quite hard to read because of all the efforts made
towards serving addons efficiently.

	From amo's point of view the work flow between mozilla updates and
sugar activities is exactly the same.
	Very fast, secure and scalable.

	Got amo running on home serve.
	Studied work flow from end user and developer point of view.
  In progress:
	Studying database schema.

Enjoy your trip!
