You have to include the requiremens from The Ministry of Education and
Research. The not-to-be-named company asked if they could accompany when
doing this effort for the Ministry.
We have an open invitation thorug my questions, to do what we already have
planed and documented to do in meetings with the Ministry Sept. 17th 2001,
Sept. 24. 2002, and Nov. 15. 2002. It's a part of The program for Digital
Competece 2004-2008 from The Ministry of Education and Research. The 201
page project plan for our part was published may 1. 2002. The intention
behind the question was explained in a e-mail 15:44 July 29th 2004.
Unfortunately all the documentation is in Norwegian, and I would not use a
minute to translate all this.
I addressed my questions to the debian-edu-list in accordance with the plans
already made 2-3 years ago.
When it comes to client confidentiality, I got a mail today that emphasize
this (from a totaly other company than the non-to-be-named one):

I understand that your eagernes to use any argument that could break my will
to keep buiseness negosiations a secret before it's ready for official
release. We have the resources to answer the question about the running of
some easy managable things in Skolelinux without your effort. And we will
go public with the results as fast as posible anyway. This will be done in
accordance to the plans, and in accordance to the agreement with the other
parties already involved - also they you omitted. So why not joing this
effort instead of using all this energy and frustration on saying no?
