Thank you for all the responses.  We are hoping to be quite an active
project so if you would like to help please let me know and I'll add you to
the Google group. I will start to use that for most annoucements so that I
don't put too much traffic onto this mailing list.

We have an image ready for download and testing. Instructions are here:

We are trying to build on the work that has been done by Edubuntu, SETC and
others and create a solution for children that is portable. To that end Ian
has worked out a system to have dropbox backup and restore all the user
files.  We are asking for testing on this feature. Instructions on how to
test are in that google doc.

Thanks again for the support! I hope you like this image it has lots of fun
programs preinstalled.
