Thanks James. I knew yesterday I saw latest bundle on http://activities.sugarlabs.org/activities to be added last month. But couldn't find it today and assumed it to be my misunderstanding. I see that parent directory may show last modified data older than sub-directory as the case in http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/sugarlabs/sources/ .
Many activities in http://activities.sugarlabs.org/activities/?C=M;O=D do not have exec in their activity.info but by inspecting their shebang it can be determined that these are python2 activities. But some such as jukebox have neither of these. Though in jukebox repository, from branches since sugar-0.94 it is specified as either sugar-activity or sugar-activity3.
In summary, I am looking for pattern to determine if an activity bundle is python2, python3, js (also if meant for sugarizer only or sugar compatible) or something else + sources from where I can fetch bundles (mainly python3). This is needed for automating entire process of generating static app store. Difficulty I am facing:
1) some have non-standard exec
2) some (in link you have mentioned) have no exec
3) where to find all python3 activity bundles . I will try executing 'setup.py dist_xo' in all sources found in http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/sugarlabs/sources/ <http://mirror.aarnet.edu.au/pub/sugarlabs/sources/sucrose/fructose/Browse/?C=M;O=D> where setup.py is available in source tarball. Is this the way to go?
