Fwd: Edubuntu and DebianEdu/SkoleLinux cooperation
Rubén sent me this mail a few weeks back and in the meantime I got some
Basically the idea is that we ship with scripts that would make Edubuntu
integrate into a Debian/Skolelinux environment. Skolelinux/Debian-Edu
currently has setup options to set up centralised authentication and
some other services out of the box, so the idea would be that someone
could use a mixture of Edubuntu desktops and a Skolelinux server if they
I can't see a reason not to, and perhaps once we've integrated the
client-side stuff we could perhaps later have a similar setup available
in Skolelinux available as a task in Ubuntu Server?
I think we should collaborate with them on this, thoughts?

As I told you in December I am now very much involved with the
Debian-Edu team. I was elected into the board of FRISK last December.
FRISK is a Norwegian organization working for the further development
of DebianEdu/SkoleLinux and also working with the general promotion of
Free Software for usage in the educational sector.
Some notes that I have gathered so far:
* *buntu clients:
* NFS and LDAP ready
* Packaging a DebianEduTakeOver script in Edubuntu?
* Debian Wiki Article: *buntu Desktop into a DebianEdu environment
* Documentation on using *buntu clients work better with a Skolelinux server
* Testing of packages that make *buntu clients work better with a
I was thinking about blogging on this, but I believe we should align
regarding this issues. Do you have some intuitive feedback regarding
these points or would you like to add points of cooperation yourself?
Also FRISK/SkoleLinux is looking for sponsors. Do you think that
Canonical would be willing to work with the organization helping with
funds or organizing events such as development gatherings?
Thanks in advance for your answers.
