This answer is much better than saying nothing, so I'm satisfied for
now. But I hope You will "push" the "no-name-firm" to stand forth. I
belive that more people than me wouldlike to know who they are. 

I'm also stressing You to tell as much as possible as soon as possible
about what this deal is all about. What are they going to do? What shall
SLX-Debian-Labs do? What do SLX-Debian-Labs and Skolelinux get in

Best regards
