I'll focuse on my computer science university studies. But I'm also
interested in physics, maths, astronomy and maybe others :>

I work on debina-installer when I find time. Would also like to maintain
some packages if sponsered.
Here in Barcelona (Spain), at my university (UAB) we have formed a group
to spread and advocate the use of Free Software in the university, we have
joined forces with another university (UPC). We want the administration
to migrate to Free Software =P
Also there is an interesting project GUNIH  (GNU in the Hispanic
Universities), they have a database  (not working yet) of software
categories and its propietary counterparts, I think some of you were
searching something like that, they got it from a European Free Software
GUNIH will use the work done by Metadistros , they are creating the
needed infrastucture to easily generate live cds (forked from KNOPPIX),
with specific personalized content. There are some DD working on Metadistros.
I'm interested in joining and unifying the forces of all those groups and
try that they don't duplicate efforts, and bring to DebianEdu all that can
be generalized and used by a wider range of people. At least I'll try :)
