Well (drum roll please), I'm going to be writing weekly report on Linux
in education (at least SEUL/edu's take on it) for Linux Weekly News.  I
haven't mentioned it here before because I wanted to see if I could find
enough to say for a weekly report.  Now that I'm pretty sure I can I'm
making it public.  As for updates on our projects, you're certainly
welcome to get whatever info you can from our project leaders (sometimes
they're a bit pressed for time themselves and can't respond as
frequently as you'd like).  The HOWTOs on using Linux in schools are
_exactly_ what Bill tihen's documentation task group is working on; you
should work closely with them, I think.

I encourage anyone interested in this to take part.  It sounds like
e.l.c will be a news and portal site (perhaps similar to OpenClassroom
<http://www.openclassroom.org>), where SEUL/edu is more a discussion and
projects site.  I think both can complement the other.
