I guess Etoys.activity (and everything below) should typically remain the same 
for future releases, but does that mean the os and the activity updater is 
ignoring version numbers from the activity.info? I understand from here:


that the version number stored in /etc/olpc-release defines that the updater 
will look into http://etoys.laptop.org/xo/11.0  for the version number 
corresponding to that release. But the link points to 108 - as you said I 
assume that should be updated but probably does not matter, but how does the 
activity updater in control panel know where to look for the latest version, 
does it simply look for the latest Etoys-ijk.xo in 


Anyway,  I do not understand the XO activity versioning, and whether to report 
any problem with the updater, in the 46 version it was reporting wrong 
versions on update, but now is fine, without any of the numbers (in 
activity.info, /etc/olpc-release, and http://etoys.laptop.org/xo/11.0)

being changed....

Sorry for these long questions, ignore it unless there is a simple known 
explanation :)
