Yes. The Gnome project (http://www.gnome.org) is going to be utilized by
Scholar Net. Software in the Public Interest (SPI) (http://www.spi-inc.org) is
a non profit organization that funnels tax deductable donations to projects
like Gnome. Keeping the educational development effort together will provide a
synergy whereby edos and Scholar Net will benefit from each other.
