[Sugar-devel] Where shall I start contributing?

I believe our immediate need is maintenance on ASLO 
(Acitivities.SugarLabs.org). It is going to take another day or two to 
complete reviewing the bundles from http://github.com/SugarLabs; 
however, it is evident that a large number have the name version number 
as the version on ASLO but are not the same. Sadly, this means that many 
of the conversions to GTK3 are not available to users with Sugar on Ubuntu.

When finished I will post an updated spreadsheet showing the problem
