What is its capacity? Can some of us order sticks from you for schools
and demos? What do sticks cost in appropriate quantity?

I believe that .sugar/default/favorite_activities may be one of the
files you want to keep. I don't know whether
/usr/share/sugar/data/activities.defaults is significant for what you
want to do, but I suspect so.

For this and other reasons, we need to document .sugar. For example, I
need to extract Journal entries created in SoaS running on VirtualBox,
where I cannot mount either a real or virtual USB drive.
And so forth.

The org.laptop.*Activity directories have the structure
Files needed by the Activity are in data/. For example, Turtle
Art keeps the .png files rendered from the .svgs in
That way it doesn't have to render them every time it starts.
Journal entries are encoded in .sugar/default/datastore/.
Presumably someone could take some of the Python code from Journal and
create a Journal browser that operates outside Sugar, and lets
developers and teachers transfer Journal entries without having to do
it by USB stick every time.
