Comment(by akonstam):

 Replying to [ticket:8106 kimquirk]:
 > The control panel software update should work for library bundles as
 well as activity bundles.  In Joyride 2301, a library bundle included in
 the activity template doesn't get installed into the library (probably
 because the bundle installation script is trying to install it as an
 activity bundle).  Check for bundle type and install appropriately.
 > The name of the update control panel might also be changed to reflect
 both types.
 From a software point of view there is no problem with having the activity
 bundle software to also install library bundles but from a user interfacew
 point of view it is a mistake. As someone at last week's Documentation
 push pointed out Activities are verbs, while Libraries are nouns,
 It a real problem to have to explain to a child that to install a Library
 or Library bundle one has to treat it as an Activity or Activity bundle.
 The installation of these two types of objects should be kept separate
