The easiest thing to do is to:
(1) clone the TA project*
(2) load the plugins you are interested in
(3) run setup.py dist_xo to generate a new .xo bundle
* git clone git://git.sugarlabs.org/turtleart/mainline.git
It may be useful to change the version number, for example, 160.1
instead of 160 in activity/activity.info
