How to help

You can help in many ways :

  • package and maintain the software listed in ?DebianEduToPackage

  • package and maintain any software listed in [http://www.ofset.org Ofset] that is not yet in Debian

  • sponsor non-Debian developers who are packaging education related software
  • integrate existing external packages into Debian : ?DebianEduToIntegrate

  • help with DebianInstaller to get a friendly installer for people with limited computer-skills

  • write good documentation for the education related software

Feel free to propose enhancements to those metapackages on the mailing list.
