Good news ... one of the upstream LTSP developers is interested in
launching a crowdfunding campaign for development toward LTSP6, which would
modernize the entire platform.  The development necessary to modernize for
LTSP would include things like pure systemd support, and things we never
fully supported in the past in K12LInux in the past like fat client mode.
He agreed that Fedora and CentOS would be supported target platforms.  He
said he will be able to work on this in September.

Could you folks find people using LTSP on any distribution and ask if they
will be willing to support a crowdfunding campaign coming in the August or
September timeframe.
