Well, we hold a little workshop with a group of teachers last Friday.
it was really important to get more idea about their needs; and to present
Edubuntu project (also free software).
Since we are going to prepare some script to simplify configuration for
them, we thing come back into 10.04 for this year and 12.04 next year.
two more questions:
1) does Edubuntu 10.04 follow Ubuntu 10.04 ? I mean, know we have the
10.04.3 (update 3), did Edubuntu get the same think or not ?
2) we want to participate with tests and help to get a great 12.04 dist :)
I tried to add bug entry on launchpad but did'nt succed. how to do that ?
or what is the best think to do when some one found a problem like we did.
