When James said, "plenty of disk space these days to include all
working activities
in a build", that suggested to me that that this is relevant; when users 'sudo
apt-get install sucrose' will they also get all working activities?

James, surely "plenty of disk space these days" doesn't apply to images
built for XO-1 machines?

To clarify, when you say, "SOAS is not live", do you mean the last SOAS
image was released a long time ago?

I would expect so

If a packager includes all working activities, then users can and do access
the "entire" library.

True; but, even as more broken activities become fixed, given the actually
used packager's images include all working activities, the situation
remains the same.

Good to know. Are those gtk2 .xo bundles 'broken'?
