Development Focus

Since opening this list I was surprised by the enthusiasm especially for 
educational conferences.  However I strongly believe that both my and 
Red Hat's efforts, time, and resources going toward K12LTSP at this 
point should be focused mainly on developmental priorities at first.

1) Development work to get K12LTSP merged as an official part of the 
Fedora distribution.
- Submit all K12LTSP packages to the Extras review process
- Adapt to the MueKow framework in order to eliminate lots of the 
redundant OS building.
- Make K12LTSP into a "mode" you can enable and configure from a GUI 
interface after you install Fedora.
- Write improved tools like selection of interfaces and it tells you 
what it will happen.  That way you aren't surprised when a DHCP server 
pops up on an existing network, causing all kinds of fun conflicts. =)

2) Development work of marketing, promotional and educational materials 
in order to allow the message to scale to greater audiences with less 
effort and low marginal cost.
- Educational videos
- Pamphlets
- Books

I *will* participate in the New England Linux education conferences 
because I am relatively nearby.  If we have a hack-a-thon I will 
probably want to participate in that too.

Maybe we could set aside some private time for K12LTSP integration or 
MueKow integration design discussion sessions at one or both of the 
NELinux conferences?
