...another more descriptive, I believe, answer could be "You don't really have a Debian Edu system when installing it on a Debian system". I believe that second elaborated view is the reason for Mike's question. To me it is far from "perfectly sense" to offer "Debian Edu" in debian-installer to get some "educational software" - I would expect to get a Debian Edu system. - Jonas
That's what I was aiming at! Jonas, thanks for reading inbetween my lines and verbalizing the unsaid.
:-)We are currently testing deployment of Debian Edu systems by installing vanilla Debian and then pulling in required packages on post-installation. The results will come in by the end of next week (once I have time for looking at finalizing those installations).
There are packages in debian-edu SVN  ("educlient", "eduroaming") that have some post-installation logic turning a Debian system into a Skolelinux / Debian Edu system, as well. I will probably take a look at those, as well, during our test cycle. Originally, they were designed to turn Ubuntu systems into Debian Edu client machines AFAIR. So let's see.
But still, I guess it is pointless offering a Debian Edu blend in D-I if the result after installation won't be a proper Debian Edu workstation.
