Hi George,

For the latest Fedora-on-XO1.5 release I've merged the English Help activity
content into the helpfr engine, and released a version for the xo1.5's
release.  The git repo is up on [1].

I tried to merge my changes back into the Help activity main branch (Brian's
Help repo[2]), but I'm having some merge issues.  Maybe you could help me
navigate gitorious and my branch of the current Help repo? [3]
