Hi, Walter

Because of gmail issue, I am sending this through Sugar-devel.

Most of the activities included in 0.106 (XO-1.5+) release have been 
moved to GTK3. The exceptions are:

Calculate, Clock, Implode, Labyrinth, Measure, Moon, Pippy, Record, 
Speak, and TurtleBlocks.

I suspect that many or even most of the remaining activities in ASLO 
have not been converted. I'll run a check on my snapshot (9/15) today to
identify ones that are not that could also be candidates for a GCI task.

So far only one GCI participant has reported attempting to update ASLO. 
The completed GCI activities will need to be updated on ASLO once we get
the problems with the dependent software resolved.

Meanwhile, kudos to Cristian for the work on ShowNTell. He replaced 
Hulahop with WebKit and also moved the activity to GTK3.
