Great stuff....

Hey Chris,

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)

 :) User page, is super! Thanks for the udpates! --ixo 12:43, 15 March 2008 (EDT)

Xo-get does a lot more with its database of installed activities etc.
Mine simply downloads and installs activities from the repository for
"supported" activities.

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).
