=== How to Create a new wikipedia activity or update an existing activity ===

[http://activities.sugarlabs.org/es-ES/sugar/addon/4401 Wikipedia es] or [http://activities.sugarlabs.org/es-ES/sugar/addon/4411 Wikipedia en]
The general idea is to download an XML dump-file (backup) containing the current Wikipedia pages for a given language,
this will be processed to select certain pages and compress them into a self-contained Sugar activity. Whether or not to include the images from the wiki articles will have a large impact on the size of the 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.
