If you guys are working on livecd for education you should talk to Conrad
Newton, he's the one doing the skoleknoppix CD (more or less a livecd
version of the skolelinux workstation profile)

- - you could help to make skolelinux available in your local languages, the
procedure for adding a new language is detailed on
http://i18n.skolelinux.no/new-language.html, not counting documentation
this takes a couple of hours at most.
- - help with documentation by:
- helping the german team with the requirements specifacation by asking
local teachers what they want/expect from a school network.
- translating existing documentation to local languages
- writing new documentation (e.g. howtos about how to use certain
applications for teaching)
- - test new release when they come out and report bugs
In short there's plenty to do for non-packagers and non-coders
