== Source Code ==

Debian Edu uses mainly common Debian packages. The remaining Debian Edu source code of
Debian Edu packages is mostly configuration and references to other packages. This source and
the packages are maintained via the umbrella mailing list debian-edu-pkg-team@lists.alioth.debian.org
while the page https://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=debian-edu@lists.debian.org provides
a view over Debian Edu (main) and Debian (common) packages.
That QA-page also provides a column VCS
with a reference to a Git index page that contains the link to clone the source code repositories.
