Read it. Sounds great! A lot of what they've been trying to do is
exactly what moodle does, so once moodle is on the XS, I think we will
be 99% there.

Also - I will be in Buenos Aires for ~3 weeks (30th March to 18th
April). Discussing with Fernando Da Rosa about perhaps catching the
ferry to Colonia.

Making sure it makes it into the XS image, right now as an RPM package ;-)

I am a core moodle dev, and I plan to do some work here see the K-12
forum in moodle.org - and get in touch with Gary Anderson - see his
posts in the k-12 forum where I posted about the XS.

But it won't happen immediately -- first a lot of OS work needs my attention.

RPM packages

I know - I find it addictive myself - ;-)
