I did say 'o.k.' to this explanation (speaking for myself).
But the point I am concerned about is that there might be thousands
of XOs out in the field whose owners I presume have not bothered to
upgrade to 8.2. Such owners might still want to look at the wiki.
WHERE are they supposed to look to determine whether a "newer"
version of an Activity is available for their (e.g., 657) builds ?
[Their builds are __older__ than 8.2.]

When such people (whom I describe above) acquired their XOs, they
were told these were "G1G1". But [as this thread describes] now
the "unsuffixed G1G1" URL lists versions of Activities presumably
meant for builds __newer__ than 8.2.
See the potential confusion for some viewers ?
