This is basically correct, with the exception that stability is not
declared on ASLO.
ASLO is naive about stable vs unstable platforms. Instead, when a
Sugar Client pings ASLO for update information, it sends a string
identifing which version of Sugar is running on the client. ASLO then
responds by sending a link to the most appropriate update for a the
given version of Sugar which the client is running.
