I have investigate a bit more about sharing whole Etoys projects between XOs.
I must confess it was a big disappointment when I realized sharing a
file among XO is not even a basic functionality. It really sound odd
when you considerer all the arguments produced around the mesh network
(it really recalls me the eBook reader software situation with its
flaky usability).
Anyway, I have just tried Distribute activity on latest updated XO,
but this activity behavior is unreliable, I was once able to share a
project, but I can't reproduce it.
