#874 closed defect (incomplete)

Lack of consistency in distro permissions and location for Activities is setting up future auto software update processes for failure

Reported by: garycmartin Owned by: tomeu
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: Sugar Version: Git as of bugdate
Severity: Critical Keywords:
Cc: Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: Needinfo


With sugar-jhbuild the lack of consistency for single location for installing activities (ideally should all be in ~/Activities) and lack of permission when placed elsewhere by distros (e.g. SoaS), making a future, reliably working, software update control panel module/process will be difficult and a likely failure.

For example, when running the sugar update currently in sugar-jhbuild, it has no idea about the current activities sugar-jhbuild has already built in it's own directory structure and will attempt to download old versions.
