Dear python-edu-sig people,
last week two of my students decided to put a nice piece of software 
under GPL, so you may take a closer look at it.

What is Ponto?
ponto is a small piece of software to enable *informatics education* by
building object oriented documents and using OpenOffice.org.
ponto is released under GPL.
At the moment two languages namely german and english are supported.
ponto will start OpenOffice.org (writer) and communicates via pyuno-bridge.

How to use Ponto?
example use (with OpenOffice.org bundled python)


[Mac OS X]

from ponto import Document
opening=birthdayInvitation.createParagraph("Hi friend,")
mainText=birthdayInvitation.createParagraph("as you know, ...")
