The Sugar Labs Activities Portal seems to be holding up pretty well under load.

My suggestion would be to start phasing out the activities pages on w.lt.o

Possible work flow. (Some of these may have been all ready)
1.  Activity Developers - Start marking which Sugar version activities
versions will work.  This is already part of the ASLO update
mechanism.  It is how mozilla insures that update find to latest addon
activity works which works with a given browser version.

2.  Core Sugar developers - Ensure that browser is reporting the
correct version of Sugar to aslo.  Configure Sugar to update from aslo
by default in .84 or .86.

3.  OLPC/Deploments update installed the update mechanism in existing
deployments as it becomes feasible.  Continue to redirect activity
pages from w.lt.o to aslo as the aslo pages come on line.

This biggest issues that this change involves a compatibility break
between the using wiki pages and ASLO to serve activities.  No one
likes compatibility breaks.

The first consensus point would be that aslo is the future activity
distribution mechanism.
