Sugar should not show timestamps for Activities which match the OLPC rsync/install time

Description

Sugar should not show timestamps for Activities in the List view which match the OLPC rsync/install time. These activities appear to be getting older and older with every release.

Instead we should just say "Installed with OS" or remove the column. We also need to be able to sort the Activity list view by name and not date as that gets confusing except when a user explicitly decided to install/upgrade an activity.

The only reason we end up in alphabetical order to start in the first place is likely a quirk of the OS builder.

Seen in OLPC 13.1.0 os1 & lots of prior builds.

The plan of record is to remove these dates from the Activity list view, replace them with short activity descriptions (from activity.info so that can also be translated) see [1] for the mockup, [2] for the email discussion. The view would be alphabetically sorted by Activity name, not date.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

So closing this one as we will fix the issue in another manner. 'invalid' was the closest as I could get.
