New subproject: DebianEdu


I'm proud to announce the birth of the DebianEdu subproject. This
subproject aims to make Debian the best distribution available for
educational use. I hope that being an official Debian subproject
will let us federate many initiatives around education like
the french Debian Education distribution[1] (in which I was involved).
I know at least of SkoleLinux[2] in Norway. But I'm sure there are other
less known efforts underway, I invite them to join.


You just have to subscribe to the debian-edu@lists.debian.org mailing
list. You can do so by sending a mail with "confirm" in the subject to 
debian-edu-request@lists.debian.org. Or you can use the web form
available here :


Many things can be done and needs to be done :
- integrate in Debian some external Debian packages for education
  (we created some of these for the french Debian Education)
- package non-packaged education related software
- improve the existing software (adding i18n, adding more translations)
- write good documentation
- cooperate with the debian-installer effort to make sure we can have
  a good installer for people with limited computer skills
- cooperate with other education-related projects (like Seul, Ofset,
  KdeEdu, ...)


It's not yet integrated in the official www.debian.org website
but it should (and will) be (volunteers can contact me :-)) :

Please relay that announce wherever you think it's worthwhile.
