I think it would be good for us to share our educational site features. Any thoughts?
This comment ( http://groups.drupal.org/node/135109#comment-445384 ) provides a great list of educational distros in the works or at least in thought. Unfortunately, no one distro solves all problems and most problems are somewhere between different distros. But it is possible to delineate what "features" (= functional, glued-together mix of modules, views, content types) are out there and to attempt to share and develop them communally.
Here are my suggestions:
1.) Write a list of what features and modules we have in working order, what we are working on and what we could work on in the future
2.) Put together a simple educational "feature server" somewhere for the various functions (most likely linked to git repos / drupal.org).
Perhaps these features could be simple extension of distro already out there.
