== Owner ==
== Current status ==
* Targeted release: .86
* Last updated:
16 July 2009* Percentage of completion: 50% All basic functionality is present. Needs testing.
== Source ==
== Detailed Description ==
Using ASLO the client can request information about updated by sending a url of the form
== Benefit to Sugar ==
This benefits Sugar by moving the entire activities infrastructure to
aslo rather than being spread across a wiki and aslo.
It reduces activity developer work load.
It reduces and isolates infrastructure load between wiki,
aslo, and download system. ASLO is backed by memcache, so standard update pings are _very_ cheap. ASLO can be configured to store and serve downloads from download-farm to ease scaling issues . Makes activities developers and infrastructure maintainers lives easier.
== Scope ==
Technically the scope is
pretty limited. Most of the changes are inside sugar-update-control or are in ASLO.
There will not be external api changes.
