Ideally all of them, as (a) there are not many activities in Fructose 
and (b) concluding from this thread that the packagers would be happy 
about it.

Absolutely, that should be documented. I leave this to the activity 
maintainers and packagers to define that policy and adding a wiki page

this happen as an outcome of this thread. Personally I think it is worth it.
