Sorry for the delay in my response. I've been incommunicado for a number of days.

when a user decides to use the "add on " feature the YaST module should provide four basic patterns
Is the intent here that these patterns should be fixed, or do we want to add the ability to create custom patterns? My thought is that a one-size-fits-all solution might be limiting in many instances. For instance, suppose the pre-K to grade 6 pattern firewalls all chat applications. A grade 6 class might be undertaking a "penpal" correspondence project in which they communicate with students from other countries around the world, so we might want to be able to create a custom pattern for these students to allow them to use chat programs, without opening up these programs to all users in the pre-K to grade 6 group.

This is interesting. I haven't seen openschoolserver or openSIS before, but I see from your profile that were/are involved in openSIS development. Perhaps we could chat more about how it could be integrated into the education module once I've had a chance to explore openSIS a bit. From my limited knowledge of openSIS, I am assuming you just envision that when the user selects "Server" in the education module, it simply initiates the installation of the Base Application edition of openSIS, and then informs the user of the URL to which they can browse in order to continue configuration within openSIS. Does this sound reasonable, or do you envision the module going more deeply into openSIS configuration?
Thanks for your comments.
