Thanks for working on this!

Administrators should not need to change the Sugar source code. For one
thing it will interact badly with package management systems.
Let's rather adjust the documentation.

We're working on setting up a public XS instance for testing, but there are
security concerns. In the meantime you might try installing XS in a local

As mentioned above, let's drop this completely.

While you're at it, can you rename uuid_ to e.g. our_uuid, please?
A trailing underscore means "we don't use it" (but got it for one
reason or another, e.g. because the API of some other component
returned more information than we need).

The if won't be needed once you drop REGISTER_URL, but in general
I'd suggest to use "not url" instead as it will catch both an empty
value and None. Depending on what exactly you're testing against
there might even be a performance benefit, but it doesn't matter
for strings, lists or dictionaries (at least with CPython).

Superfluous even before dropping REGISTER_URL.
