Yup. That sentence was there for about an hour, as a placeholder before 
our "debian edu lenny roadmap" session in Merida, at which we changed it to

'Here we will collect items for our roadmap to lenny. Do not just edit this 
list. Contact h01ger via [MAILTO] debian-edu@lists.debian.org before doing 
so. (The dev-meeting in October in Extremadura decided that h01ger is 
responsible for maintaining the roadmap.) Thanks. Exception: feel free to add 
yourself to "who plans to work on it" :-)'

Because it's is not helpful if everybody adds their "pet bugs" to the roadmap, 
which then will become cluttered and unmaintainable.

It goes the other way round, too: more thinking before writing is saving time 
and nerves too. :-D

And (I'm pretty sure) you have no idea how much we thought about this, 
assuming we thought little (or need more thinking) can be taken as a 
demotivating insult, too.

Feel free to send patches, it seems to be important for you.

That said, you might be interested to know, that I talked with Daniel about 
the issue (after noticing the discussion that happened that day on the german 
list, and before it was added to the roadmap) and that he said he will add 
this to the manual. Which prompted him to document the first steps with lwat 
(howto add linux machines to the network), which is a pre-requirement to 
document howto add windows machines.

And this really puzzles me:

Aehm, if you are not sure whether a bug is actually fixed, why add it to our 
workload instead of confirming first, if it's fixed or not?

All this said, I'm happy you follow this bug and even/also that you added it 
to the roadmap. You were not in Merida, you just followed the wiki edits 
remotely and added something which is important for you. 
Great. "Unfortunatly" _we_ (not me alone) decided that bug was inappropriate 
for the roadmap and removed it. Removed it without further notice as we were 
aware of the issue (and were working on a fix) and are already tracking it. 
So IMO no big deal at all.
