Hi Peter, hi all,

Thanks for the awesome work.
I'll be at FOSDEM this week-end and on Sunday morning I'll organize a workshop 
with other edu software people (developers and distro people) and the aim is 
to see how we can share more things between developers and how we can work 
closer with distributions in order to help them package better our software.

Thus your summary arrives exactly in time for me to present the state of 
vocabulary data formats for KDE-Edu.

Can you elaborate about write support please? Does it mean an editor is 
integrated in the lib? 

Thanks, I'll send a separate mail about FOSDEM right now,
