hey Kurt, 

We could use your assistance on the server development list.

Here is the best place to get started:

You can download the latest version of OLPC's School Server here:


I would love to hear how it compares to Skole Linux.

I don't know what the development road map is the School Server. The new
school Server architect Martin Langhoff starts today. I do know that
Martin wants to develop a web-based administration interface.

I particularly don't know if OLPC intends to stick w/ Fedora or move to
Debian. I personally have a strong preference for Debian :)

I can get you a copy of our mondo archive if you like, won't get to it
until later today however.
