I vote for "Skolelinux" (the version number is not important for me).
For me it makes sense for debian-edu to be "pure Debian". A sub-project
within Debian, aiming at a CDD (which is defined as purely within
Skolelinux, on the other hand, is "based on Debian". A separate project
with its own (slightly different) principles and goals, using mainly
Debian but mixning in also Knoppix- or Morphix-based live-CDs, non-free
Java and possibly other non-Debian or Debian-derived stuff. Which is
all very great - don't misunderstand me - it just isn't "within Debian".
Some may even be upset about the name Debian (which is a trademark)
used for something including SUN Java. As I understand trademarks
there's a big difference between mentioning the brand in the product
name (indicating the product *is* the brand - which is wrong) and using
it in description or other places (indicating the product *contains* the
brand - which is correct).
So I recommend avoiding the names "Debian-edu" or "Debian-Edu" as
release names for the current work.
