[Sugar-devel] How to find the repository of an activity?

Thanks for taking my patches.

A general question; what method do you use to find the source
repository of an activity?

While looking for the repository for the Log activity I found that
there's no pointer in the activity bundle.

We have pointers to sources in firmware, in Debian and Ubuntu
packages, and in some RPM spec files, and these pointers save me some

Some activity bundles have useful information:

The ImageViewer and Speak activities have

	homepage  = http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Activities/Image_Viewer
	homepage  = http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Activities/Speak

The Maze activity has

	repository = gitorious at git.sugarlabs.org:maze/mainline.git

The TurtleBlocks activity has

	website = http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Activities/Turtle_Art

The Measure activity has

	update_url = http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activities/G1G1

A specification of the activity.info format doesn't mention website,
repository, or homepage.  It does mention update_url.
