Bug#476646: debian-edu: Please include software packages that are relevant for development
Dear Debian-Edu developers,
we consider several packages very important to teach software development
in schools. So I would love to see a meta package education-develop
that contains the package dependencies as they are defined in the
attached tasks file. I did not submitted it to SVN because it might
have immediate influence on the size of the distribution medium which
is probably not the best idea in the current state of development, but
I would be happy if this would be implemented soon. The list is
based on a hint from a sidux-seminarix user/developer ?
Thomas Kross <email@example.com> which he gave to a German
mailing list of the Pingos project (http://www.pingos.org/).
Thanks for maintaining Debian-Edu

Description: DebianEdu software development related educational applications
This metapackage depends on various applications that can be used to
develop applications in schools. The idea is to support integrated
development environments that are easy to learn and lead to quick
results for beginners.
Depends: fp-compiler, fp-ide, fp-units-base, fp-units-gfx, fp-utils, fp-units-gtk2, \
fp-docs, fpc-source, fp-units-fcl, fp-units-i386, fp-units-multimedia, \
fp-units-misc, fp-units-net, fp-units-rtl, fp-units-fv
Note: this dependency is just contained in desktop-other, but it might be
worth mentioning here
Ignore: sun-java6-bin, sun-java6-demo, sun-java6-fonts, sun-java6-jdk, sun-java6-jre,
Note: While Java6 is in non-free it is definitely useful for software development
in schools and should be on our radar in any case.
Note: Eclipse is a really powerful development environment and schould not be
missing in this list, but it might be some overkill for students and thus it
is only "Suggested".
Suggests: tk8.5-dev, tcl8.5-dev
Suggests: swi-prolog, swi-prolog-clib, swi-prolog-http, swi-prolog-semweb, \
swi-prolog-sgml, swi-prolog-table, swi-prolog-xpce, swi-prolog-doc
