Blueprint changed by Stéphane Graber:

Whiteboard changed:
  === LTS ===
  * We want to be an LTS, EC voted with quorum at UDS session
  * Get rid of iTalc in favour of Epoptes
  * We need to apply as an LTS release for the next TB meeting
  * Everything on the DVD should be migrated to dh_python2 since we don't want to support any old python stuff for 5 years
  * Try to reduce the number of dependencies from universe to the bare minimal we actually need (potentially porting in-house tools to newer supported libraries)
  * We're not going to support point releases for KDE, at best going to manage KDE security updates where necessary.
  === Arm support ===
  * Arm is really big, going to happen
  * We'll wait for 14.04 (or 13.x) for an Edubuntu ARM version
  === Edubuntu Specific ===
  LTSP Live:
  * LTSP Live is re-written, modify ubiquity plugin to use edubuntu-live code
  * Feedback on installation/setup progress
  Package selection during install time:
  * Cherry-picking the installed packages broke when selecting a package which description has UTF-8 characters.
  * We'll aim to have the slideshow ready for alpha 2, or alpha 3 so that there's plenty enough time for translations
  * Integrate SSD in Edubuntu...
  * Authenticate against AD, LDAP, edirectory
  * For 14.04 we can aim for the server part as well (FreeIPA, etc)
  === Edubuntu Planning ===
  * Put together an Edubuntu product roadmap for the next few development phases so that people know what we're planning
  === Artwork ===
  * New wallpaper, we don't want to touch much else
  * Bitesize bugs for Unity educational lenses would be awesome
  === LTSP ===
  * Chroot upgrades: revisit for 12.10, too big to tackle for this release.
