Fix It Friday, Edubuntu, LTSP5

Wow. Yesterday was Fix It Friday (FIF) for Edubuntu, and we got a lot of stuff done. Bugs were squashed in Sabayon, dhcpd, denemo, and LTSP, as well as a ton of testing. I personally put in 15+ hours, and Ollie did the same. Very worthwhile.

LTSP5 in Edubuntu's going to be the best we've had yet. Huge speed, security, and functional improvements, plus Francis from Mille XTerm has brought forward some ideas that have allowed us to add some basic multi-server load balancing features into LTSP. Very big news, indeed.

Finally, we've already been making use of PPA's (Personal Package Archives) in Launchpad to distribute updated docs pre string-freeze for the Edubuntu handbook.

Busy, busy.
