I will not be at the Sunday k12linux meeting for the next few weeks.
Early Tuesday morning I depart for Japan for 2 weeks of LTSP related
activities.  I return from Japan October 28th.

I am trying to fix some last bugs now to get a K12Linux live ltsp server
release out the door before I leave.

I am focusing on finishing touches on LDM with Maureen Duffy's new
artwork.  I need to modify the LDM theming engine itself which is not an
easy task. =(

I am hoping that someone else can help with the following task.
GNOME developers have finally fixed this annoying bug where it shows the
Shutdown, Reboot, Hibernate, etc. buttons on user desktop sessions of
LTSP clients.  Unfortunately, it was fixed only in Fedora 10.  They said
it should be an easy backport to Fedora 9, but I will not have time to
work on this before I fly.  The code moved around from one GNOME
component to another but the code didn't change much, so it should be
reasonably easy to figure out.
