I consider this to be a fabulous initiative. Growing the Activity
ecosystem is very important for Sugar and OLPC and a handbook has been
a missing link.

I will speak with Christian about a homepage link and I even think we
should do a callout in our next press release, tentatively scheduled
for February 3, the day OLPC France will present the OLPC project (and
myself Sugar) to France's largest corporate foundations at L'Atelier
