The Debian package has been there for quite some time.
What Skolelinux needs is a package that sets up a ready-to-go
CMS tuned for schools. That is, the CMS must be running and
ready for teachers to use right after the Skolelinux main server
has been installed.
A suggested solution to this was to leave the Debian package
as it is. This package is a general package, which requires
some manual configuration performed in a shell. For Skolelinux,
an additional package, e.g. ez-edu, could be made. That package
would depend on the Jonas' generic package, and use scripts to
set up a CMS with the appropriate templates.
This solution could be re-used for other limited domain setups:
ez-home, ez-blog, ez-whatever. Maybe eZ would consider a
"custom eZ" product line? I know this might diminish eZ's
consultancy business. But since those packages still are
baselines, just at a higher level, they could also mean more
