Not sure if the licensing thing will be a deal breaker for including
activities in the manufactured image, but we should definitely get that
All I'm saying is that we need to decide which activities to include in
the image before they start manufacturing them for sale.
I want to make sure that decision gets made early. We should also test
those activities with an extra level of focus since we know they will
get built in. Better to do that before the release is closed. That's why
I think it merits a place on the ECO checklist.
