hi all !

is anybody looking toward the integration of LTSP 5 in fedora . all i
found is  a bugid ##234048 . i can help if needed .

There has been some work. There is a tracker bug
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=188611

But I don't know what the status is right now. First K12LTSP packages
were to be included, things begun a bit hastily, then stopped half-way. It seems that now the developpement should happen at
https://launchpad.net/~ltsp-drivers
but I don't know where fedora stuff is in it.

Warren Togami and Eric Harrison were the one who lead the ltsp
inclusion.

A bit of history for anyone who might not know: Eric Harrison has maintained the k12ltsp distribution that you can find at http://k12ltsp.org/mediawiki/index.php/Main_Page for many years. This isn't a separate distribution in the usual sense but a stock fedora or centos (depending on the version) rebuilt to include ltsp and some additional programs, plus some scripts to make it come up working as a server that will network-boot thin clients. These have been based on ltsp4. The initial work with ltsp5 has been in ubuntu/edubuntu. I believe the plan is to package ltsp5 (and perhaps some of the other k12 additions) for inclusion into the stock fedora distribution, but it hasn't happened yet.
