You've got some great links there, and enjoy reading about your contributions to such projects as xo-get and OLPC Europe. I noticed that your User page is fairly bland about some of your background and skills. How about updating it with some 'user information boxes' such as other users have... such as... User:mchua, User:ixo, User:sj, User:Firefoxman, etc... What do you think ? :) --ixo 02:38, 17 February 2008 (EST)

But I'd be happy if someone merged my script into xo-get, I do not intend to maintain it indefinitely. It should be simple to add the official activity repo to xo-get. In my script I like the simplicity of the default operation, which simply upgrades all installed activities to the latest version found in the repo. Also working from the console/ssh is useful, possibly one should even support for installation without Sugar running (by simply unzipping the .xo). - Bert -
