Hi Ishara.

One quick recommendation: you'll probably get more comments if you post your
proposal on the wiki and in email directly, rather than as an included file.
This is especially true when you use semi-proprietary data formats like
microsoft .doc, which many people in the open source community take a dim
view of.

As to your actual proposal, it is interesting in terms of the use cases, but
pretty weak in terms of technical detail. Particularly as you refer to
postgresql, and yet it is not clear where this would be running. Your
diagram seems to indicate that the database exists in copies both on the
teacher's machine and on the school server. Remember, Sugar activities
should try to avoid assuming good connectivity, and should work with very
limited computational resources (processor, disk, and ram). We will consider
proposals relating to the "XS" or school server, which would have slightly
higher resources; but if your idea will ony run on the XS, then how is it
different from Moodle?
