Could you explain more background about the change to joyride?  (I
wouldn't care about olpc3 at this time)

For activity developers Joyride has been:
1) staging environment before adding to production stream where
developer can test if updated activity with some fixes really works
2) smoke testing environment where one can smell something broken
because of recent changes to activity and sugar/system software

I believe environment for those purposes will be still needed even if
OLPC no longer integrate activities to base build and support them.
Assuming you will permanently stop pulling activities to joyride ,
will OLPC have replacement (for either activities "blessed by OLPC" or
community), or are you implying community need to plan it ?
