The Admin mode options should be part of the Options panel of the activity settings (see for example smallnumbers activity, which has both Dataset and Options tab in the activity settings).
So it needs to be migrated from DialogActivityConfig to a DialogChooseLevel, using an ActivityConfig.qml file...

That feature to add customizable words is only for the future admin/server interface, so really no need to add it in the default datasets. The teachers will then have an interface to use that feature and add their customized words and datasets.
It is exactly to create new datasets, not to be included in default ones.
Tue, Aug 4
After reading again the mail thread on the topic, I see what you meant as "Play with customizable words", and it's indeed a feature that should be added in the code to allow the future usecase of creating datasets with customized words in the future admin/server feature.
But then I think it doesn't need to have an actual dataset added as the description you made can suggest, it should only be a possibility in the code...
A few things:
Mon, Aug 3
New activities "Learn additions" and "Learn subtractions" added.
Closing as resolved.
The option for digits representation is now ready (with choice between Arabic numerals, Dots and Fingers).
Maybe for large grids we can have 7x7 ?

Actually, after thinking about it, maybe putting images of dots instead of stars is better, as it may be simpler to read for any young kid than stars, so I think I'll go with dots instead of stars.
Indeed, that's why I'll have to make images with sort of randomly placed stars (constellations) for each digit. Because making randomly placed items programatically is much harder to make sure that items don't overlap/are not too hard to count (and would also be much heavier to compute everytime).

OK, then I can add an option to have different representations for the numbers. I think stars (constellations) and hands should be enough (I think adding both dots and stars would be a bit redundant).
But only for the learn_digits activity, as the code/layout would not be really adapted to add those also for addition/subtraction...
I remember @echarruau said that magic-hat is a bit "complicated" for young children (I guess it was about the "workflow" of having to click on the hat...).
Activity "learn digits" is now ready :)

For consistency, as we already always limit the number of boys/girls to place according to the numbers in the instructions, it would be logical to do the same for the number of candies.
So, unless others disagree, I think we don't really want this behavior, and it can be changed.
I confirm my first idea from previous comment: better keep the "show counter" as an Option, and not part of the datasets.
I was reading today's backlog on irc, with the questions about options/dataset conflicts...

Difficulty levels are ok too, but let's see if @echarruau confirm it.
The description (Goal) is ok for me.

Actually for datasets description, for consistency I think it's better to use "multiplication table of ... " instead of just "table of ..." (same as you did for subtraction memory).
I think for the dataset description, it would be better and simpler to just say "addition table of 1", "addition table of 2", .... And it would be consistent with the other activities ( same as it is for subtraction memory, for example).

I already did the first part (implement keyboard controls in IntroMessage, and checked it works good for all activities using it) ; the rest will come soon.

Fixed in commit 7433227a9f89d6c47ad94e515197e4d95dacaaed
Patch merged in commit 42142a0ce8b441916987f6be8463e73244ecdb93 ,
and then improved upon it in next commit 7433227a9f89d6c47ad94e515197e4d95dacaaed
As explained in the task comments: change the number of stars for the datasets.
For the datasets descriptions, I think it would be more efficient to make it shorter and to the point, something like:
"Maximum n candies and n kids, no rest.", "Maximum n candies and n kids, possible rest.".... (replacing n with the actual values of course)

I thought we agreed on the content...

to me the dataset description here is good, just the star numbers need to be changed to be better adapted to the actual difficulty of the levels.

Oh, looks like I missed this review request...
Actually I've added keyboard controls to this activity a few days ago and updated the manual accordingly, and fixed this part at the same time.
So this diff can be closed.

Like I said on the comment for multiplication memory:
-I think we should keep this content for the dataset
-just the text for the goals can be simplified (like, "subtraction table of 1, maximum number 11"...)
-and probably the difficulty/stars need to be adapted a bit
I think the text can also be simplified for all the operations memory activities, similar to the enumeration memory, like:
"table of 1"
"table of 2"
No need to duplicate levels across datasets...
So only one level per dataset is enough (with one dataset per maximum number)
Maybe not in the introduction voices (as it would make them too long, and force to re-record specific voices for each arithmetic memory activity for all languages....).
But we could add such text note in the Manual parts, why not.
... same comment as for https://phabricator.kde.org/T13124.
I see what you mean, though as the description ("Goal" text) says, the goal is to "practice", which implies already learnt somehow...
So I would prefer to keep full table like this for the arithmetic memory activities, and not change the activity behavior.
May 12 2020
Sounds good for me.
Just maybe, description can be a bit shorter, like
"match numbers up to 2" ...
May 10 2020
@echarruau : this is the dataset content I asked for when reviewing the proposal: one dataset with one level per number table.
@echarruau : you put the link to this task in your comment, I guess you meant https://phabricator.kde.org/T12428
Also, the dataset description you put for "Addition and subtraction memory game against Tux" only contains addition related data, and too much redundant content...
I agree that if we want to add a way to choose the quantity representation, it should be with an activity option, not into the dataset.
