[Edu-sig] Updating the edu-sig page

Hi everyone,

I have been given permission to edit the edu-sig page (
http://www.python.org/community/sigs/current/edu-sig/) on the official
Python web site.  Think of me as the Benevolent Edu-Sig Slave For Now,
answering to the community as to what changes you'd like to see being made
on that page.

So, I am looking for community input as to what kind of changes you'd like
to see. Before you go wild with suggestions, I'd like to share a some
observations and a suggestion.

1. Doing changes to that page involves an official commit to the svn
repository.  As other people might be monitoring changes, I don't want to
overwhelm them with tons of small commits.
2.a) There is a lot of material on that page that is duplicated (sometimes
poorly) with information that can be found elsewhere.  For example, the
section "Shells and Editors" contains links to
http://wiki.python.org/moin/PythonEditors and
http://wiki.python.org/moin/IntegratedDevelopmentEnvironments, in addition
to actual links to a few tools.
2.b) Note the "wiki" part of the two links mentioned in 2.a) above.  This
means that YOU can edit such pages, without having to send me an email with
you thoughts, waiting for me to act on it, worrying about me selectively
editing the information you submit, etc.

So, I am thinking that the edu-sig page should become a high level
description of what is available elsewhere and that a lot of the "meat"
should be actually hosted on wiki.python.org - which could be kept up to
date much more easily and much more effectively by the community as a whole.
