Schooltool will be in Ubuntu Archives for 11.04

What is Schooltool?

From the SchoolTool website:

SchoolTool is a suite of free administrative software for schools. Since it can be installed easily and used with no licensing fees, SchoolTool can be used by schools for a single purpose, by individual teachers or small teams within schools, or as a whole-school comprehensive student information system, encompassing demographics, gradebooks, attendance, calendars and reporting.

Schooltool and Edubuntu

In 2005 when Edubuntu was first released, it shipped with Schooltool installed by default. For a few releases, Schooltool wasn't available in the Ubuntu archives due to many of its dependencies being unavailable.

A collaborative effort that spans the SchoolTool itself, Zope maintainers, Ubuntu MOTU, Edubuntu and Ubuntu-NGO over the last 2 releases paid off and now Schooltool is back in the Ubuntu archives. Users who are testing the upcoming 11.04 release will already be able to install it.

SchoolTool won't be installed in Edubuntu by default, but it will be just a few clicks away via the Ubuntu Software Center.
