Ahem, either you misunderstood or somehow misunderstand your response:
I do not suggest to change anything at laptop.org, but to _duplicate_
the most recent 0.82.x tarballs currently only officially available
below http://dev.laptop.org/pub/ to _also_ be available below
0.82.x packages will be included with next stable release of Debian,
which means that (most likely) for the next couple of years Debian will
promote laptop.org as the source of Sugar software rather than
sugarlabs.org. Which is plain wrong IMO, but really needs above action
to sanely be possible to attempt fixing now.
You write that it is done" but looking at e.g.
shows only a single tarball for the 0.83.3 release.
With my suggestion effectuated I would expect at that same URL to also
see a tarball for the 0.82.11 release of sugar-toolkit.
