Hello Tom,

I just took a look at the SchoolTool Web site.  You're most certainly 
right in that there's no point in Ubuntu vs. Red Hat.  This is a 
"K12OSN" forum, not just a K12LTSP forum, and everyone who does Free 
Software in education is welcome here.

In that spirit....

Since I have actually looked at the Web site, I'm having trouble finding 
a tarball (that is, a .tar.gz) for the source code.  If we had that, 
then we could just compile SchoolTool on *whatever* distro, including 
the BSD's.

Any way you could make a source tarball available, or a 
CVS/Subversion/git link where we could pull the source tree down?

Thanks for your work,
