Re: [K12OSN] Sugar on K12osn



LTSP and K12LTSP are changing.  Currently K12LTSP uses LTSP 4.2.  Future
versions will use LTSP 5, which is a major change.  Without getting into
too many details, LTSP 5 requires some changes at the distro level.
Fedora is currently implementing these changes, so there looks like
there will definitely be a Fedora-based K12LTSP (renamed K12Linux, I
think).

But will there be a CentOS-based one?  I'm not sure.  My guess is that
K12LTSP 5EL (the current CentOS-based version, using LTSP 4.2) will not
be upgraded for a while.  Before a new version comes out, RedHat must
implement the distro-level changes that Fedora is currently doing.
Maybe that'll happen with their next release, but I don't know if it's
something they're working on or not.  Anybody?

By the way, you might also want to check w/ the Edubuntu folks.  They
are pushing LTSP use in schools as well.
