As I'm wrapping up my 1 year contract with SLX Debian Labs to work on
debian-edu, I felt I should try to summarise what I've done during this
year on the job, how well I've managed to meet the goals laid out in my
contract and task list, and what areas I've fallen short on, as well as
imparting any advice I can for SLX or others based on my experiences
during this year.
Hmm, does that mean that your contract now is ended ?
If so I hope you still will be able to help out a bit. As you may know,
I've been working a bit with getting support for 2.6 kernel and gnome
into Debian-edu. I guess 2.4 and KDE will still be the default choice
when installing Skolelinux, but I also know there is many out there that
won't use Skolelinux because of KDE. I have looked at the possibility of
creating a gnome-based cd, but found that the education-desktop-gnome
would not get installed when using tasksel. If I on the other hand used
"aptitude --with-recommends install ..." then the availible desktop
would be installed. But that also leads to an installation of kdm (and
other X-applications) on a main-server-only installation. I only found
that it's a problem, I did not look into why this happened, but I guess
you're close than me to find out why.
