[Sugar-devel] [FEATURE] Add can share/or not information to activities

I would like to propose the following Feature for inclusion into Sugar:
"Can share" .
This feature will make it clearer if an activity can collaborate or not.
So far we know inside an Activity if it is able to be shared or not
because the share button is changing it's state accordingly (the button
is made insensitive if the activity does not support collaboration). But
there are other places that need to be aware if an activity supports
collaboration or not. For example the buddy palette in the neighborhood
view where you can invite a buddy to your activity. An invitation should
only be possible if the activity supports collaboration.
I propose to add a field to the activity.info file. This field should be
named 'can_share' ad takes the values 'yes' and 'no' (like the
'show_launcher' field). The default value that is assumed if the field
is not set will be 'no'. The reason here is that the activity maintainer
who cares about collaboration sets the field and there are more
activities that do NOT support collaboration than there are who do.
The shell and the toolkit has to change, furthermore the activities that
support sharing have to change their activity.info file.
