Summary

We will create a nice, gui management tool for LTSP, and Edubuntu administrators to manage their thin client network.

Rationale

Administering an LTSP/Edubuntu server, or modifying it from the default config currently requires directly editing config files. This causes several problems, as several of the config files (dhcpd.conf being an example) have complicated structures, and it's far to easy for first time administrators to get it wrong, and with a "minor" change, render their thin clients unbootable. This causes an additional support load. An easy-to-use configuration gui will greatly simplify things for first-time administrators.

Use cases

Scope

Managing thin client setups

Design

Implementation

Some code has already been written, and an example package is in universe. Finish off the above points, include a .desktop file so that it can be included in the System -> Administration menu, and promote to main.

Code

Data preservation and migration
