[seul-edu] New educational project

Doug posted this earlier, but my /home was full, so things screwed up.
Good thing I've got some redundancy in here to save messages...:)
Sorry to those who've already gotten this.
(Only these two messages were lost. Things should be set now. :)

Pangee (v. 0.0 ;)

Pangee is a new project aimed at building a completely multi-lingual GPLed
language learning system.

It should be architectured as a client-server application, with the server
itself using a SQL database for storing resources (manuals, lessons, texts,
exercizes, and why not sound and graphics...)

Il should allow end users to simply add new resources to the database,
making it a free-resource exchange platform. The more is, it dissociates
your (native) spoken language and the language which you are learning,
making it easy to translate, say, a chinese course from french to english.

We are now in the late design work, programming should start in a few weeks
at most. Expect a first usable release by the end of may, with a windows
(fear and loathing) client, and a *nix server. 

You are welcome to have a look at our early documentation and send
comments. French only.
