that's certainly very interesting. Sugar's code is open and at some
point I think we'll see countries patching its source code in order to
customize the software further than just adding/removing activities or
changing the language.
I hope that this can be done in a concerted way that doesn't bring
duplication of efforts and everybody can share the advances of each
Feel free to ask in the sugar ml any questions you have about that.
