* Use new {{activity migrated to sl.o}} template on wiki pages of
migrated activities.
* Start to remove redundant incorrect information from them.
* Continue to update activity template fragments for Activities/All
and activity groups.
* I changed {{OBX activity}} template's core/bundled/extra handling.

1. Leave activity pages on wiki.laptop.org
2. Add new {{activity migrated to sl.o}} template to them, see e.g.
3. Start to delete {{OBX }} templates and semantic info such as {{OBX
xobundle and |i18n= from them that's redundant and will drift

I'm not sure what you mean.  sl.o wiki pages have no metadata.

Sounds good.

Yes.  Activity maintainers need to keep their activity fragment
templates on wiki.laptop.org up to date so various subpages like
Activities/All and Activities/G1G1/8.2 continue to indicate newest
version that works with that release.

It's software, anything's possible!

BTW, I made an adjustments to the {{OBX activity}} template.  This
used to categorize activities as core, bundled, or extra; but now that
all activities besides Journal are optional, only the first two show
anything.  I think it works.

I hope this helps.
