If I have understood correctly we are talking about Installation
software patterns and an extra repository (or add-on cd) to provide
software for the educator. Is it envisaged that this will include the
desktop similar to the ideas of Edubuntu? Or are we just talking
School Administration?
The direction is indeed to have this "add-on" cd that works as a part of all
three SUSE environments. (a total vertical sales solution approach)
first: as a set of "install Patterns" for OpenSUSE that include both desktop
and server\edu-administration materials.
second: as set of patterns to make SLED more education centric.
third: as a set of patterns to make SLES more education management centric.

With OpenSUSE we get a chance to "reach the world" by keeping this approach in
mind , we should build the cd to minipulate the build process to produce one
machine that is both desktop\ltsp and adminstrative, giving even the poorest of
schools the ability to transmit student records electronically, even if it's on
a floppy.

With the SLE variants we should be thinking about specific network functions
i.e. will this be the SLED\LTSP box or the SIS server , the CMS server , the
LAS server, the internet gateway, the website, the e-mail server, will there be
M$ boxes on the network, etc. Remembering that a lot of schools have money for
technology but it's limited and the persons in charge are more likely to be
technology passionate educators , not technologists who are passionate about
education. (I, being the latter and still rather rare).
