build 8.2-760

After cleaninstall or olpc-update to this latest build, when you go to browse there is nothing on the left hand side of the browser window. This used to be where the books and content were.

  • Action Needed changed from never set to design

This is expected based on #8029. Either install a non-raw OS, use a customization stick, or get cscott to make the activity updater install some library content.

  • Owner changed from sj to cscott

while this is expected from 8029, a specific concern is that olpc-updating from an older build removes the defualt library (just as an earlier flag day olpc-update removed activities...)

I think the priority here is ensuring that the g1g1 build (for instance) will properly include both collections and activities through the bundle-installation process.

Scott - can you tell us if the activity updater was designed to work for content. If so, then perhaps there is a bug. If not, then perhaps this is a future feature.

Added my explanation of a "critical" problem to #8029. Basically, if 8.2 is installed from the customization sticks available today, but the system is not connected to the internet, then the user is more or less out of luck in trying to access information provided through .xol bundles.

For the issue where you cleaninstall the latest build or if you use olpc-update to get the latest build, the result is the same, the content or collection info does not update.

The activity updater gets the activities and installs them, but it doesn't get the collections or content. The page where the content is being pulled from is:

I think this needs to be fixed for 8.2. IF the problem is in the wiki page, we can release the xo build.
