I now finally got around to get hurt by this change. Or so it seems:

sugar-toolkit now (with most recent 0.82.x packages) installs activities 
as described in Sugarlabs ticket #8136, but the Sugar environment 
seemingly ignores the *.mo files at its new location below 

Creating a symlink from /usr/share/sugar/<activity>/locale to 
/usr/share/locale/ makes my locales work again.

In what files should I look for code changes to actually make use of 
this change?

Could you please test upstream if looking up *.mo files from below
/usr/share/locale/ actually works at all in 0.83.x ?

Kind regards,

  - Jonas
