Well, this might be interesting even in a more general way (more general
theme than Debian). There are a lot of issues associated with the use of
Free Software for an educational purpose (education : i.e. to share
knowledge ; so to share the ressources with people with disabilities).
I remember someone, on the debian-french list, asking for some help about
these problems. But we haven't known what to answer :(
Can you please subscribe to email@example.com, by sending a message to
firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject : subscribe lsm. The list is reasonably
loaded, and you can discuss the issues about such a theme. We will see, after
some discussion, if this can be hold in the Debian area, or in a more
general way (I think so).
