No, that's not my understanding.  Perhaps you are thinking of the
activities or activities2 directories, but my intent was the sources


Neither of these are automatically synchronised; and perhaps they
should not be synchronised; as uploading to these directories sends a
signal to downstream packaging that is different to the signal sent by
ASLO.  An activity maintainer might want to make a point release to
downstream packaging that is not necessary to release in ASLO.

You might also recall Peter Robinson's regular replies to [ASLO]
release announcements;

"Sounding like a broken record but can we have a tarball please :-)"

Also consider rights to release new activity versions for the
missing-in-action maintainer activities.  While I can't promise to be
the maintainer of all those activities, I could avoid forking and
local-to-OLPC point releases if I could use ASLO instead.
