We started on something like this back in late November, but haven't pursued
it.  We wanted to go through the archives and pull out discussions on common
threads, then combine them into documents giving the "sense of SEUL/edu" on various
topics.  Those would then be easier for newcomers and casual browsers to go
through than reading through the email archives.  The case studies would be one
instance of that.  This is a fairly large task, so it will require some assistance
from a number of us.  Ian Bicking started working up a list of topics we could
filter on from the subjects on the mailing list messages; I can put that up here
for you to see.  I think it needs condensing into fewer, broader categories, which
is one part of why we haven't gone further with it yet.
