[Activities] greater activities list by deleting activities list

I'd just like to be able to find ONE place to go to that would list the correct version
of each activity FOR EACH RELEASE OF THE PLATFORM.  Knowing that version 554
of stump-the-wumpus is the latest does me no good if I need a version no newer than 357
in order to run it under 8.2.1 on my XO.  Since SugarLabs seems to be intent on running a
few miles ahead of OLPC, having SL keep the list is counterproductive for XO-1 users.

And wherever the list is kept, KEEP IT CORRECT, PLEASE!  For some value of correct.
"Activities/G1G1/8.2.1" should be the place for a G1G1 user to go to for the best version
of activities that will run under 8.2.1.  Not the list of G1G1 activities that now have been
updated to run only with Sugar 0.84 or later.  Otherwise somebody's going to get a lot of
support requests as G1G1 users update their machines.

IMO, Activities/All is hopeless -- the author rarely even says what build he has tested the
activity under and there's no provision for the software update utility to determine if the
activity is intended for the platform on which it is being installed.  So anybody doing a
"get latest" from that repository without having first read the description carefully is asking
for trouble.

Is anyone against retiring the activities at lists.laptop.org list in

favor of migration to sugar-devel at lists.sugarlabs.org?
