is this just a fault in my configuration or is this list really so

this list is alive, but we are currently sleeping the sleep of the

Ah! Good to hear :-)

The openSUSE-Education handout currently contains some package
descriptions for gcompris, italc, LTSP and Tuxpaint. Perhaps these
descriptions can also be used in the Lessons for Lizzards book?

Sounds good - could you point me to the sources?
svn checkout

Other question: I like to integrate some of the current LfL
articles (for example: the KDE-kiosk one) in the openSUSE-Education
handout - is this ok for you? Or should we find a better way for


Lfl is licensed under the GFDL, so IMHO you can use it's contents as
long as the edu book is also licensed under the GFDL.

Yes, same for us: GFDL.

I am not sure
whether you need permission from the author (if so, you have got mine
for the Kiosk chapter ;) ), you should probably ask Jürgen or Ciarran
to be sure (and please let us know).

Thanks - as both books are under the same "free" license, I think asking
Jürgen or Ciarran is not necessary. But I like to inform the original
authors when we use their texts. ;-)

FYI: Looks like the only thing left to build the book in the Build
Service is the font definition in the susedoc package:
contain references to fonts in the agfa-fonts package (which has a
commercial license).

Does anybody know if there are really free fonts that can be used
instead of the agfa-fonts (Note: we need ISO-8858-5 and ISO-8859-15 or
UTF-8) ?

...and how to overwrite the settings in the susedoc package with that
