One thing I thought would be useful, given the expansion of LDAP, is
the inclusion of more/different default install options in K12LTSP.
What would be nice is something similar to what Skolelinux has. You
can install a Main server, an LTSP server, a Combiserver(Main server
+ LTSP), a workstation, or a standalone. If you install the Main
server profile it acts as a SAMBA. LDAP, and NFS /home server out of
box, no LTSP, just a server. The Combiserver is both a main and LTSP
server in one (For installations that only would use one server). The
LTSP only setup gives you an LTSP server that gets it's home and
authentication from a main server. Workstation is essentially the
LTSP server install without the LTSP portion (still uses NFS /home
and LDAP from the main server. And the standalone mode is basically a
fedora desktop install.
Given the increasing nontechnical audience of K12LTSP, which I was
reminded of this week at the NCLINUX conference, I think this would
be an extremely helpful new feature. I know Eric is a pretty busy
guy, but I thought I should at least mention this idea. Im not really
a programmer, so I don't know how much help I'd be, but I'd sure like
to help make it happen. I know I'd use that kind of feature.
