Yes, about SEUL/edu 
I know SEUL/edu since the beginning, and SEUL for even longer : Roger
Dingledine is an ex-MIT student and still benefits on 2 machines there.
He does the job for no money, very seriously, years long. 
Douglas Loss is working in a local University. He launched SEUL/edu
mailing list, and because he is very talented in finding information all
over the web, and in making people get along with one another, SEUL/edu
mailing list has a great success. It brings information about free
software in education, to lots of people everywhere. 

Yes they are not enough cautious about licenses. I try to tell them as
much as I can. Therefore we do not, and will not, link to them on GNU
education pages.
