Meeting summary

1. Who moderates the meeting and who writes the summary

Holger Levsen moderates the meeting and Jürgen Leibner writes the 

2. Squeeze status

See http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Status/Squeeze

2.1 Squeeze status - single arch DVDs

Holger Levsen said, that it has been cleared on irc. He will create 
additional single arch DVDs, then we evaluate them, then we'll see.

2.2 Squeeze status - current status / blockers

Petter Reinholdtsen said that missing ldap admin is the big blocker and 
that Iceweasel's default page is not http://www/ indicates that our 
mechanism to set the default is broken, which is critical. As admin 
tool we decided on gosa, whats left to do? GOsa lacks support for 
editing netgroups, and is unable to configure our dhcp and dns servers. 
Getting GOsa to work with powerdns seems possible with little work. 
http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.ldap.gosa/506 associatedDomain is 
the ldap attribute we need. We want bugs for each and every issue, 
seperate bugs! As NFS exports depend on netgroups, it is important to 
get it working. For netgroup support in gosa, there is a patch from 
Andi Mundt. Petter Reinholdtsen believes, that we should set up three 
access levels in gosa, admin, jradmin and other/none using groups, to 
make sure it is visible from within linux who got extra privileges, and 
make sure not all teachers got extra privileges. Documentation for 
usage of GOsa in Skolelinux has to be written.

2.3 Squeeze status - new name for the thin-client-server profile 

Lets change the profile name at the beginning of the wheezy circle.
