Dear Sugar Activity Maintainers and other volunteers with packaging

We would love your help in packaging your Sugar Activities so they can be
used with Sugar on a Stick.

What is Sugar on a Stick? It is a Live USB based distribution of Sugar. The
idea is to give each student a full Sugar experience on any computer they
have access to with just the cost of a 1 or 2 GB USB stick.  This could make
make Sugar very affordable in US urban schools, many of which have older
computers already, and are in the shadows of corporations that throw out
hunderds and thousands of computers each year.

We will be starting a Pilot of Sugar on a Stick at  Gardner School, an urban
Boston School with 90% eligibility for free and reduced lunch. We have
people around the world ready to try it. It could be a promising way to use
containers full of computers in Africa, it could be a great way to let
people try Sugar at conferences and an easy way for people to learn to use

We have the basics working - http://sugarlabs.org/go/Sugar_on_a_Stick

But Sugar without activities is boring!!  We need you and your activities!
Please help us get activities quickly ported to Sugar on a Stick, we have a
lot of people pounding on our doors to try it.

Here is the status of activities packaging:
