[Sugar-devel] Submitting New Activities

All is good now.

Prior to this evening, "Our Music MC" was not showing up as an activity for 
me. (I appreciate David having uploaded both activities, and am sorry the 
"MC" version was late appearing.) Now it is "here", and I have completed its 
presentation (having learned in the meantime how to take snapshots!)

FYI: I'm using IE8 in Windows as a browser.

It might be helpful on the initial commit/upload page in the developers hub 
to state that the "Activity file" should be an .xo bundle, and that its top 
directory should be (blah, blah). And perhaps give the OLPC link telling how 
to make bundles. That would sure have been helpful to me.
