This IIAB XSCE content does not reflect the opinion of OLPC. These pages were created by members of a volunteer community supporting OLPC and deployments.


School Server - Community Edition (XSCE) is volunteer projected designed to be easily adopted by OLPC deployments or other service providers for deployment in schools. Initial development is driven by motivated micro-deployments and mid-sized deployments.


The primary objective for School Server Community Edition 0.3 will be to clean up and modularize the existing code base to ease future development and maintenance while reducing the learning curve for potential developers. Several deployments have been using various school servers for several years. Their needs are well understood. These deployments have forked development rather than coordinate with a central upstream to maintain their local modifications.

Scope and aim

The goal is to make a XSCE version which can serve as an wireless access point for a school with several extended features as listed at User:Holt/XS_Community_Edition/0.3/Project_Specifications
