As far as I know, a template is sort of a special new user, so this 
directory is supposed to be created as the template's homedir. IMO it 
could be deleted. The existing templates newstudent and newteacher are
added in a somehow 'clean' way (not using GOsa²) during installation via 
ldif files, so this differs quite a bit.

The package debian-edu-config ships a lot of configuration files and 
scripts (sometimes somehow documented inside); further configuration is 
done via cfengine. Also, some setup steps are integrated into the debian 
installer. So it'll be time consuming to understand how all these pieces 
make up the whole thing, I guess.
