Cool, thanks.

Currently only lenny-test I'd say, but as we get closer to the release, we'll 
want lenny too.

I've just added it to the agenda :-)

Maybe it's good (and possible?) to have the lenny repo(s) on bzzware machines, 
so we can save some ressources on our machines? As for the documentation, I 
propose to split it into pages for lenny and for etch - to minimize 
confusion. The pages about etch should/could then be moved into the manual 
(the wiki which becomes the content of the debian-edu-doc package), which btw 
also needs to be copied over to a lenny version at some point :-)
