I just did an extremely small test:
1) reflashed 4 XOs with candidate-703 + recent bundles
2) installed olpc-utils-0.71-1 and a usb ethernet adapter on each XO
3) started Chat, Write, and Read (Phyla.pdf)
4) made friends among all 4 xos
5) shared Chat by invitation; and accepted each invitation
... typed a few messages ...
6) published Write and joined the shared instance
... typed a few comments ...
7) published Read and joined the shared instance
... one XO received the PDF quickly; the other two took about a
minute longer (perhaps because they waited through a timeout period
before requesting the document from an XO with a complete copy?)
The interesting property to observe is that on an Ethernet, with four
XOs plugged into a shared switch, activity sharing was 100% reliable.
