Jonas: Ok, sorry if I was unclear. The way I see this packaged is like a 
custom eZ publish debian package. This can be a separate debian package, but 
it does not need to. You can ship several configurations (packages) with the 
eZ publish release package. Basically you want a package which is ready to 
use for the educational use. This can simply be a parameter to the debian 
package to choose a specific kickstart file (which templates, design and 
content to use).

We would both want to have a general package for eZ publish and debian _and_ a 
package specific for educational use. This can be either one .deb package or 
two. I don't think I'm the right person to answer which one is best. Mabye a 
small eZpublish education addon package for the general eZ publish package 
with the .edu package having dependencies on the eZ publish package.

3.x and 2.x are very different but I'm not an expert on debian packages so I'm 
not sure how much the current 2.x package can be re-used.
