I've uploaded GCompris and GComprisAdministration that should not fail

* For anim activity, net.gcompris.animActivity bundle id was changed to
* Full featured sugar toolbar - palettes, activity button to open help dialog
* Journal integration for anim, draw and wordprocessor activities
* Share activity sets between GComprisAdministration and GCompris activities
