Is it just me, or is LTSP a mess?

Splendid.  Thanks, Jordan.  So this is what the developers need from the
users in order to advance the project and stabilize outstanding issues?  I
doubt that I can make the IRC, but I can do my part at launchpad.

Is the following still the goal of the Edubuntu Project?  If so, perhaps
some 'bugs' may be seen as feature requests or feature clarifications.

"Edubuntu aims to be an Ubuntu variant suitable for classroom use. The aim
is to deliver a turnkey solution that enables time-poor educators with
mid-range technical skills to set up a computer lab and/or establish an
online learning environment with as few clicks as humanly possible, then
administer that environment without having to significantly expand their
technical skills. Centralized management of configuration, users, and
processes together with facilities for working collaboratively in a
classroom setting are its principal design goals. Equally important is the
gathering together of the best available free software and digital materials
for education under one distro.

Edubuntu and Ubuntu are not meant to be seen as distinct projects; Edubuntu
is part of the Ubuntu project, and they are both part of one development
team that contributes to the whole. Edubuntu is Ubuntu with a different
default setup."
