the next release of edubuntu is aimed at school management, thus there
will also be the need for a centralised presumably LDAP based user
management tool (which should be scalable for the next release where we
target municipalities)... since we will also (hopefully) have a
community based server team with the dapper release cycle i hope that
the developer resources can be shared for such common solutions that
occur in several places in the different subsets of ubuntu we have. i
would really appreciate any kind of help and experienced hints for this
topic to make up the best solution we can for the task. feel free to
participate to make sure you get what you expect from such a tool ;)

we will work out basic specs at the next conference:
