Hi Bill,

the shell sources have been moved from /usr/share/sugar/shell to

But there have been other file layout changes inside the shell, these
commands should help you find stuff:

find /usr -iname favoritesview.py
find /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/jarabe -iname \*.py
grep -R "class FavoritesView" /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/jarabe
