Thanks for the work on these.

I think there are some good elements here but it seem overall a bit
too large in scope for the foreseeable future. I think it will take a
least a couple releases to get that amount of work done. So it would
probably be good to shrink stuff down a bit to what can be done for

For workline 1 I think that probably the wizards and LTSP stuff
(mostly) is probably out of scope for Karmic. An application review
and bug fixing/package maintenance are sorely needed. Pursuing a
better delivery medium is also like to take a lot of resources for

For workline 2 there is a need for artwork. I would like to put
age-appropriate artwork in each of the application bundles. In terms
of documentation we have lots and lots of things that need to be done
so I imagine that can take most of the Karmic time. As far as
usability we could start looking into some usability studies.

I like the way you pulled out the usage scenarios. I think perhaps the
community should maybe go over those as a first step. You've listed
five different ones. I'm concerned that that would be taking on too
much, maybe it should be narrowed down to 2 or 3 as a first step?
