So Gonzalo's accelerator key patch has landed? And it breaks the activities that had work-arounds? Strange, but given the situation, I am happy to provide a patch as per his suggestion. I'll have to fix a few other activities that use this workaround as well.

Question: What version of TA do you want patched? I'd prefer to give you something based on v110, which has some bug-fixes. See

Yes, it was landed after a couple of mail threads and several days of sitting quietly for review on the mailing list. I don't think he was aware that activities had attempted a workaround, and certainly wasn't aware that it would break them. We only saw the breakage after the fact. Sorry about that.

From the OLPC standpoint, just landing fixes in master branches and doing new activity releases in due course is good enough - no need for any specific special releases. We are not including the fix in 11.2.0.
