I really wish you would be a bit more careful with the facts. There was 
no repository for this activity, so it is impossible that i destroyed 

Why would you merge translations from one activity to another when 
neither has been ported to GTK3?

Porting to GTK3 (no evidence that it deserves a +), should affect the 
wrapper code and not the binary. Making this activity or gnuchess 
available for the Ubuntu Sugar would be helpful.

A simple alternative is to install gnuchess on the Gnome desktop and 
then prepare a simple wrapper from the HelloWorld activity (GTK3 version 
in the repository). The wrapper would execute gnuchess in Sugar.

EndGame activity is a different animal as it teaches simple end games in 

I appreciate your including release in the set of tasks, something which 
has not been done. One of your bullets should be to increment the 
version number.
