Hi Jonas,

I believe this version comes from OLPC (James Cameron). This version 
includes valuable changes to the structure of Sugar. However,
sugar-bundle-install apparently was not updated to reflect this. 
Similarly, the permissions on this version must be set up to share 
activities between users, which is not relevant to the XO implementation 
where there is one user - olpc.
