Thanks for dropping me a note about your project. I checked out your site,
and it looks like there are a lot of similarities with the seul-edu site and
the seul project in general.
Specifically, your mission statement includes:
* developing educational software. We've got a large list of projects being
worked on by the seul-edu people (www.seul.org/edu/projects.html) as well
as some other educational projects being hosted (www.drgeo.seul.org,
www.qvocab.seul.org), and we have space to fit many more.
* "Get GNU/Linux to the people." This is seul's goal in a nutshell, except we
also want to make it more suitable for the people in the process.
* Free software is better. Well, yeah. :)
You mention on your front-page that you need help setting up a mailing list
and a CVS repository. While I can set up both of these for you, I invite you
instead to join the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list (mail email@example.com
with body 'subscribe seul-edu'); you can also use our cvs repository if you
It looks like you're working on some documents describing putting Linux
into schools -- one of the main purposes of the seul project these days
is to draft and publicize advocacy documents, howto's, etc.
In addition to the seul educational project, we also have many other projects
going on, like www.wxftp.seul.org (graphical ftp client),
www.independence.seul.org (extended redhat5.2 distribution oriented towards
end-users), www.geda.seul.org (tools for automating electronic design), etc.
Please let me know if you have any questions, or if you think merging the
projects is reasonable.
The seul-edu archives are at www.seul.org/archives/seul/edu.
