Oh! Great news! I've been monitoring sugar-dev and olpc-dev for
discussion on the server too. Jim said discussion would happen around

(damn! I see discussion is taking place in the wiki - heh, I'll have
to somehow track that...)

I am not too fussed about apache, but probably having a more complete
packaging system (IOWs leave the rpm database there, and provide means
for package installation), and probably supporting non-python

I am coming from the Moodle (and other web-based learning tools) POV.
Sadly, the range of existing software in this area in python is poor,
most of the interesting activity is in the PHP space.
