Ahh, yes - I should have checked before writing this.  (You can
only have a guest account if you are not a developer - but you can
apply for becoming an official developer ... ;-) ).

No - just tell me if something does not work what you are expecting
to work.  We have just to fiddle around with the user permissions.

This was exactly my impression when I started to build the common package.

Note: It might be reasonable to send a hint to the debian-edu list
if you might probably break something of their stuff.  I did not
notice anybody from debian-edu people here on this list and they
might have comments if you point them to the start of this thread.
My current scripts need no change to their stuff.

No doubt that this is possible.  But my concern goes a little bit
further.  When I was asked on exhibition boothes about Debian-Med in
special and CDD in general it was hard to point to very detailed
documentation.  If you only have a CDD-doc package it is fine for
people who use Debian.  But we need some detailed information on
the web to convince outsiders.  An overview over the integrated packages
of a task might be a good start here.

Kind regards
