Gabriel -

No, there are no current plans to shut down any services on  OLPC has an 8.2.1 release underway and we'll continue  
to maintain those services in the future.

On the other hand, anyone working on Sugar efforts such as Activity  
development should be encouraged to put all those efforts under the  
Sugar Labs roof where they can be more readily available to the entire  
Sugar community (not just the OLPC portion of it).  The last paragraph  
of Wade's message (quoted below) described it very well.
