Hi, Sebastian.

For once we agree completely. ;)

The intent of this project is to separate development and maintenance 
from publishing and distribution. ASLO will be the library of published 
activities available for installation. Development and maintenance would 
be done using github proecedures. So a reviewer can bundle new versions 
of activities and add them to ASLO for distribution.

In essence, ASLO is an example of a fusion application where the user's 
request returns a page built from a server-side store. This is the basic 
domain of Django.
