With an email title like "Edubuntu and beyond!" I really feel as if I should
have a cape, and a set of tights with a large letter emblazoned on the front.

Well, maybe not the tights.

Yeah.  That would be awesome.  The handbook needs to be brought up to date as
well, and I'm beginning to look though and quantify some of our bugs as well.

As part of my "Make Lucid Stable" campaign, I've been heavily working on
Sabayon lately, so Teachers with class labs will have an effective desktop
management tool.  What I'd really like us to do is (somehow) pick our top (x)
bugs we'd like to get fixed for Lucid.  Since it's long term, I'd love to focus
on stability at this point.
