They do not cover everything sugar@ is for[1], or is currently used
for (see next point).

I'm not sure I agree - sugar@ has so much traffic not
relevant to "casual" activity authors (for example, your
"Congratulations..." thread).

I can't believe I did this, but I went through the July sugar@
messages and categorized them into ones I thought would be appropriate
for the AA list and ones not (thus for the current sugar@ list).

Totals:  808 messages
AA - 293 messages 36.3%
SS - 515 messages 63.7%

1. From http://lists.laptop.org/listinfo/sugar :
Sugar is the internal code name for everything users see. This
includes the sharing and collaboration experience, base set of tasks,
and the entire desktop stack. This mailing list is to discuss the
design and the implementation of that effort.
