I'm travelling back home this weekend, I'm hoping to get my additional
code changes in and tested ready for a release early next week (if all
is going well).

Should do it for you, FWIW I think the latest SoaS build has sudo now,
but the above su should work if not.

After cloning the source, I'd usually just use the Sugar UI to erase
the old Activity version, then ./setup.py dist_xo and sugar-install-
bundle dist/Physics2.xo, but after that, you can move the git clone
content directly in ~/Activities/Physics.activity for a minimal test
cycle (unless your testing changes to Activity icon or MIME stuff that
Sugar registers during install).
