I don't see how we can get clearer and simpler than "Sugar activities
I don't see the benefit in calling it either a library or a portal.
If I were describing it to a developer colleague, I'd say it was "a
web site where you can download more software". If I were describing
it to my mother or similar non-technie person who nonetheless knew
what a computer was, I'd use exactly the same words. To call it a
"library" or "portal" to the non-techie adds nothing but non-standard,
overloaded terms. Libary means more than "collection of activities to
rate and download". Portal means more than that, too.
If you think "addons" works a bit better: "Sugar add-ons web site",
well, that's another debate :).
