One thing that might help with that is a shared understanding of what
it means for an Activity to be "working, tested, and stable," since
different people are likely to have different expectations for this.

Towards this goal, one of the milestones I'm aiming for is getting our
current 6 Activities to pass the existing draft of
http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/SoaS_Activity_Criteria. (Help is very
welcome!) This is probably more than we need to +1 an Activity for
inclusion in SoaS for this release - and the final decision for
whether a package is in or out for v.3.0 lies with Peter - but it's an
attempt to start to set some standards.
