Hi Scott,

Now that we have olpc-update able to use a local XS, I'm wondering
whether we can get activities on the local server too.

The old activity-update doesn't exist any more (at least at
git:// ), so my guess is
that the code has been absorved into sugar-update-control.

A few easy questions
 - How does it read the master list of available activities?
 - Does it use the URL in the activity metadata as per

I am wondering whether we can make it attempt to retrieve things from
'http://schoolserver/bla' (or even rsync://schoolserver/activities)
before it hits "external" urls.
