I will go back to Congo in March, in order to do some more training
for the people, to coordinate the translation of some programs to Lingala
and some other stuff.

We are still happy with the ruleified PCs their, and we advanced in
installing new applications and making the desktop more usable. I am
already thinking about a "Rule-Desktop" as something like a "product" in
the line of Rules. I mean a rulified RedHat (or Fedora) with
add-on-scripts for installing a filemaneger (mc), Abiword, Gnumeric, a
Webbrowser, mailclient, firewall (Shorewall). Actually it means switching
the so called vumBOX to Rule-Desktop (a means of nameing), putting the
knowledge we have and which is documented in the vumBOX handbook into a
script and burning anything on a CD. What do you think about it?

Reagrds, Ingo.
