readetexts and viewslides moved to

Over the weekend I updated Read Etexts and View Slides to be more like 
the current Read activity.  Previously they only attempted to save 
metadata on closing instead of writing a new file.  I was getting "keep" 
errors because of that, so now I link a temporary file like Read does.  
I also fixed them so that you can launch them from an icon and be 
prompted to open an existing Journal entry.  This makes the activities 
much more useable, in my opinion, but I am disappointed that I cannot 
filter the Journal entries by MIME type.

The code for both has been copied to, and I think I 
did everything OK except I forgot to put the project entry for Read 
Etexts in the category "activities" and I don't see a way to fix that.

Currently the code is up to date in both old and new repositories.  
Should I continue to do that, or should I abandon the old repository?
