[seul-edu] [Fwd: Re: Question about eduBase]

Here's the first response I've received from my new personal project of
emailing the maintainer of every app listed in our Index.  I hope you'll
be seeing more of these.  They don't remove the need for us to do evals
ourselves, though!  Come on folks, let's keep moving!

eduBase is being used in one school in a patchwork kinda way. 
Unfortunately, as my family grew (2 new kids) my wife and I had to move
closer to our family.  As a result I had to leave my very cool education
job for a moderately cool IT company.  As such I am no longer
developing/maintaing eduBase.

Keep up the good work!
