I've read up on this and poked it some more today, I'm only just
learning python so its a bit over my head. That said it doesn't look
too hard or time consuming for someone who knows the codebase better
than I. It breaks down AFAICT to the following changes:
- Changes for "check online" for Activities. This should be simple and
only a minor change
- Change for connecting to a Wireless AP. Major change for this is to
move from "user settings" to "system settings" and the links below
seem to make it look simple.
I've not checked GSM, ad-hoc wifi or mesh (not supported in SoaS).
