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
