Package: sugar-browse-activity
Version: 200+20170502-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

did a fresh installation of DEBIAN stretch Xfce. Stumbled over that entry in
Xfce menu "educational . Browser – surf the world.”

The “sugar” package strangely only ships with Xfce, not with the other desktop

The command sequence “sugar-activity webactivity.WebActivity -s” does not work.

Unsufficient documentation comes with the package.

Tried to find out in two DEBIAN forums, what is behind that “sugar” thing.
Nobody could ansdwer.

So I am placing a bug report here. Maybe the package just “slipped in”.
