Hi all ..
This announcement may be of interest ...
Date: Sun, 8 Sep 2002 10:52:57 +0200
From: Raphael Hertzog <email@example.com>
Subject: New subproject: DebianEdu
I'm proud to announce the birth of the DebianEdu subproject.
This subproject aims to make Debian the best distribution available for educational use.
I hope that being an official Debian subproject will let us federate many initiatives around education like the french Debian Education distribution (in which I was involved).
I know at least of SkoleLinux in Norway. But I'm sure there are other less known efforts underway, I invite them to join.
HOW TO JOIN You just have to subscribe to the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list. You can do so by sending a mail with "confirm" in the subject to email@example.com. Or you can use the web form available here : http://www.debian.org/MailingLists/subscribe
HOW TO HELP Many things can be done and needs to be done : - integrate in Debian some external Debian packages for education (we created some of these for the french Debian Education) - package non-packaged education related software - improve the existing software (adding i18n, adding more translations) - write good documentation - cooperate with the debian-installer effort to make sure we can have a good installer for people with limited computer skills - cooperate with other education-related projects (like Seul, Ofset, KdeEdu, ...)
WEBSITE It's not yet integrated in the official www.debian.org website but it should (and will) be (volunteers can contact me :-)) : http://wiki.debian.net/DebianEdu
Please relay this announce wherever you think it's worthwhile.
