If you're happy that your new Activity release also works with 8.2  
(that's what all the latest G1G1 XOs will be pointing too***), you can  
hit the edit button next to your activity on http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activities/G1G1 
  and point to a newer .xo.

If you have release compatibility issues (say your latest 9.1 work  
will break on 8.2) things get more ugly, this wiki page may help:


***why it wasn't it just called Activities/8.2 and then changed per  
each new distro release is beyond me.

A quick test of WikipediaEN-4 on an XO with 8.2.0 shows a similar  
behaviour. A quick selection if link hopping took 64sec, 31sec, 15sec,  
29sec, 22sec, 17sec, 24sec, 14sec, 56sec, so there is some variation  
(though all seemed pretty painful times to me).
