=== How to Create a new wikipedia activity or update an existing activity ===
Generating a Wikipedia activity requires a computer with a lot of available disk space, ideally lots of RAM and a working Sugar environment. It is probably best to use packages provided by your favorite Linux distribution or in a virtual machine. The wikipedia xml file is very large (almost 6 GB for the Spanish wikipedia, and it is even bigger in English), and you will need lots of space to generate temporary files. The process has a long run-time, but it is mostly automated, although you will need to confirm success at each stage of the process before moving on to the next.
 
This page is a work in progress. If you have doubts or the information provided is not adequate, please contact me at gonzalo at laptop dot org and I will try to improve it.
