Big Hairy Audacious Goals

Big? Hairy? Audacious?

A "Big Hairy Audacious Goal" (also refered to as a "BHAG", see: Wikipedia) is a big project goal, usually set internally as a goal that is so big and audacious that it's almost unachievable, but just almost.

Edubuntu 12.10

Edubuntu 12.10 will build on the exceptionally high quality release that is Edubuntu 12.04 LTS. Additionally, we are planning to take on some complimentary, higher risk projects for this release.

We hope that these projects will result in the following technology previews that could evolve into full products for following releases:

Edubuntu Server

Here are some ideas we're considering so far:

  • System imager / disk cloning tool
  • Schooltool
  • Directory server (either FreeIPA or Samba4, TBD)
  • File server

Edubuntu Tablet

Here are some ideas we're considering so far:

  • Unity touch or KDE Plasma Active (TBD)
  • Developer community through Ubuntu Software Center
  • System management via Epoptes

How do I get involved!?

We need testers, developers, documentation writers, etc, etc.

Interested? Please refer to our Community page for details on how to get in touch, or send a message via our contact page.

The best way to get and stay in touch with is is via the #edubuntu IRC channel and the edubuntu-devel mailing list, the details are on that contact page listed above.
