SEUL-Leaders: People are already talking about SEUL, indirectly

Forwarded are the interesting parts of a message to linux-admin.  I intend on 
following it up with a message mentioning SEUL as a project, and pointing to 
the web site (which one?) with the caveat that it will be moving soon.  We 
also need to consider posting to c.o.l.a as soon as we have something
(anything) to show for our efforts.

hey but base setup could be pretty easy done using setup script, it does all
 the things including basic network setup, speakin; about there rest
 there are so many different software packages, that it is hard to
 put all the configuration file, maybe the better idea would be to
 make additional script.. say configure, which after make would do
 all configuration matters?

but we can get linix to the same level, can't we? X-windows looks pretty 
original to me
