But you omit repositories in other than git.sugarlabs.org?

For instance, Implode-17 has activity.info file with correct
repository value, yet you had created one for it?

Activities may have no repositories, a repository on
git.sugarlabs.org, a repository on laptop.org, a repository held by an
individual, or a repository on http://github.com/sugarlabs

For some activities, the repository on http://github.com/sugarlabs is
a clone of a master repository somewhere else.

Not if there is a more recent repository than git.sugarlabs.org

No, I didn't say that.

I've stated why I think that is bad.

I don't agree with this goal.

If there was any consultation on this goal; those who make the most
commits should have the most say.  ;-)
