This is excellent news!  I'm going to go read the blog now.

Can we work on getting the Deployment page a little more up to date? (could
you forward me on to the ZA list?)


There is now a pretty neat template that uses our new semantic tools.  The
form template has fields for number of laptops, language, type of keyboard,

If you go to http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Category:Deployments you can see an
auto generated table of information from deployments and pilots.  It's
pretty neat IMO.

All the best,
