I for one would *hope* that on the IAEP list many people do  
participate who are not necessarily familiar with technical details,  
but who care deeply about education. Care so much in fact that they  
are not even detained by these awkward instructions when they try to  
help. In know there were such people in the OLPC community, and  
hopefully we are not driving them away by too much tech-talk that is  
only remotely related to the actual educational goals of the project.
