Interesting news I'll say :)

Yes. In Skolelinux we got a tradition for reaching out, cooperating on 
several levels, with several projects. GNU/LinEx in Extremadura 
Spain[1] and Edubuntu[2] are two such communities we cooperate with:

We are planning an international "On Ramp" conference and developer 
gathering June 5-8 early this summer. The agenda is twofold. First we 
will share experiences with schools which have switched to free 
software for several years with users who consider a switch. Second we 
will organise a standard Skolelinux/Debian Edu developer gathering, 
with an international focus. I'm just now in communication with Agder 
University to host this event. They are positive to our proposed 
program, but I need final confirmation from the institute we are in 
contact with. 

Anyway, why don't you join us in June?
