The Help activity is about to be used on a bunch of laptops (via the
G1G1 activity page/activity updater)!
The activity itself was originally written by marcopg, and its content
is being (manually) generated from the FlossManuals remix system:
http://en.flossmanuals.net/remix . It is a combination of chapters
from the Sugar and XO manuals.
Help test and improve Help! Write and improve Sugar/XO content at
flossmanuals, find and submit bugs for component help-activity, make a
new good-looking cascading stylesheet for the bundle!
To try it out:
(1) get Help from git:
sudo yum install git
(2) get the Help xo bundle:
