Thanks for the Feed Back Jonas. I feel your pain. You are one
hundred percent correct that iaep is the catchall list for the
project. If a topic starts getting enough traffic, It will likely
branch off into a new list.
Hopefully, we will have enough eduction specific traffic to warrant
its own list in the near future. But, to be honest, I think that will
take a lot of work. On the bright side moodle has laid a lot of the
ground work in bringing the notions of community development and open
source to educators.
