Hi All,

Closing out this thread, we have a target list of activities now.

I passed your input on and we will build a release candidate with the 
following activities:

All G1G1 activities from the first G1G1 (including all 4 TamTams) as 
listed at: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activities#G1G1_activities

Scratch (v9)
Wikipedia English

Soon we will build a signed release candidate with those included. They 
need to survive a week of final testing so the list may still become 

Thanks for the test input on the spreadsheet and thanks to the activity 
authors who got back to me on short notice in direct e-mail.

There will be more chances to pick activities which we manufacture on 
the XOs in the near future.

One lesson learned is that we need to start testing and naming the 
target activities sooner and I need to give everyone more lead time. I 
will work on setting a milestone for choosing and testing activities in 
the next release.
