That makes sense and would be really nice if we could really drop
content bundles and just have activities.
I also would prefer http://activities.sugarlabs.org but wonder what
would happen if we need to host some other kind of Sugar "addons" in
We have been making an effort in the last releases to make more
aspects of Sugar extensible. Right now you can deploy those extensions
by placing .py files in /usr/share/sugar/extensions/*, but in the
future I can foresee that some kind of installable bundles will
contain those .py files plus icons, metadata, etc.
But perhaps we could start now by calling it activities.sl.o and when
it's needed rename it to addons.sl.o and redirect the old name to it?
Thanks for your opinions,
