There's a brief overview of the chapters that we're thinking to include 
over on http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Hacking_Sugar#Programming_Sugar

Basically the activity handbook should end up being something like all 
those "learning <insert language of choice> in 21 days" types of 
documents. We really want to guide programmers who have no prior 
knowledge of OLPC, Sugar, etc. in being able to write activities for the XO.

In order to preserve the coherence that we aim to achieve with the 
handbook (as opposed to the mess on the Wiki) we have decided to limit 
the number of contributors for the moment being. That will allow us to 
create the necessary structure and basis before releasing it into the wild.

At the moment we think that we'll make the first public release of the 
handbook in mid-January.... So stay tuned!
