Last year we had some trouble with SkoleLinux because there was not enouth
coordination. We should fix this this year. SkoleLinux = Debian-Edu
should be represented in the right way. Because at LinuxTag Chemnitz
I was sponsored by creating a Debian-Med poster and perhaps it would be
possible to provide some more general information about Custom Debian
Distributions I would love to have a "CDD-corner". I would volunteer to
be present often in this corner, where "often" means I would like to keep
me out of the normal boot stuff scedule and find another volunteer perhaps
from the SkoleLinux team to care for this part. Experiences showed that
people from time to time drop in to ask for this special purposes and
thus it would be good if always somebody is around who cares for them.
I'm thinking about preparing a special CDD-Flyer using the Layout of
our current flyer. BTW - I guess we should upgrade our Flyer to Sarge.
Even if it would not be released at this time it will surely be in not
so far future and we should not provide old information.

Regarding the "official CDDs" I did my statement above. I'm not
competent enough for others.

Good idea. Would it be possible to ask the sponsors of our general Debian
flyer to care for those "similiar shaped" flyers as well?

This depends from the response to my suggestion above.
Thanks for organizing LT 2004
