It would be a great boon to the Translation Team if the activities
were co-located on git hub (in some fashion to be determined).  It
would greatly simplify the creation of Pootle-VCS linkages for commit
of L10n (when the Pootle restoration project reaches that phase).

We used to have an active 'Activity Team"
https://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Activity_Team that would chip in to
maintain activities.  I think we need to organize something like that
again.  Too much good work gets done by some young kid in Uruguay and
then gets left behind to bit-rot.  The diaspora to GitHub has only
aggravated the problem of keeping such works going beyond a junior
developer's period of engagement.

I am working on compiling a canonical list of activities, their repos
and L10n status (among other details).  I'll share an early draft
here, I am open to help in building this sheet out, but a local
spreadsheet is working best for me at this phase of development.  I'll
share future in-progress versions upon request and hope to be able to
see this information in a self-updating form at some point in future
(parsed from activity.info files, perhaps).

A shorter, less-detailed listing of those projects currently hosted on
Pootle is maintained here:


There are some things (like the slider puzzle question) that will
require resolution as the list fills out.
