The only separation is:
glucose: sugar toolkit and the desktop
fructose: the core activities. A long time ago, these were the activities
distributed with the olpc images, and tested with every release.
honey: all the other activities.

With the time, olpc images included more activities,
and the separation between fructose and honey
didn't have sense anymore. Honey2 was a separation made in the pootle
because a page with a big number of activities was very slow.

These names are no related to AC (they had a image called dextrose)

I proposed in the past or remove the categories or put in fructose
all the activities olpc (or now sugarlabs) test and distribute by default
in the images. But didn't had traction and in the end is more work
for infraestructure team without to much gain.

Also, if we move activities from categories, some url would change,
and we will broken links.

This is true. Is a task where anybody could help, and that work
would be beneficial and appreciated.
