 '''''DebianEdu'''''
   is a project about improving Debian to make it the best distribution for educational purposes.
 '''''Skolelinux'''''
   is the name of a CustomDebianDistribution which is produced by the DebianEdu project.[[BR]]
   "skole" is Norwegian and means "school".

When you follow the above link to Custom Debian, the link given there to Skolelinux fails on a local to Skolelinux proxy error. Shouldn't Skolelinux be officially listed on this page? (Is there a formal way to suggest changes TO the wiki without this temporary mess? Signing up for the debianedu mailing list is not appropriate. Other wiki's have a discussion page for every real page. Perhaps you could make a DebianEdu/Discussion or Comment page and link to it at the bottom of every DebianEdu page.)
