Marco, Bert,

I do read the sugar list, I saw Bert's email, and I am definitely guilty
of not having offered a timely reply to your questions. My apologies.

The list of packages that pilgrim knows to install is at 


The current process for RPMS already listed at that location is to
upload an RPM with a higher version number to ~/public_rpms/<build> on

Please, please, please also include the SRPM in that directory alongside
the RPM. We aren't using it yet, but we will be very shortly.


The process for new .xos is to have one of m_stone, c_scott, cjb, or
marcopg apply a patch to 


that lists the activity name and to upload the .xo file to 


I believe Marco knows how to do this.

We are half-way through the change to our build-tools that is required
to read .xo bundles from ~/public_rpms/<build. I fully expect this
change to land by early next week; it has not yet because the person who
has to integrate it has simply had higher priority bugs (namely, getting
first-boot activation to a deployable state).


Again, sorry for the delay.  More details about current speculations for
killing joy will follow this afternoon.
