Fedora Education Spin
This is an attempt to create and to maintain a possible education spin of Fedora.
Here is the kickstart file for a GNOME-based spin of Fedora 8 (It's size is approximately 695 MB): File:SIGs Education Spin livecd-fedora-8-education-final.ks
And here is a possible proposal for Fedora 9: File:SIGs Education Spin livecd-fedora-9-education-beta-1.ks
This one here is now KDE-based due to some space problems with the old version. We may have a discussion on this (and on the included applications) on the mailing list or during a meeting.
This one is related to mathematical applications and will be one of our first spins. We might still change one or another thing...

And here is another possibility, which is now GNOME-based and possibly intended for older students:
