Bug Description

SchoolTool 2.2 was developed for 12.10 release and followed the Quantal Release schedule. Several development releases have been made to the development PPA and were tested in real schools in Virginia. This summer main development was on the CanDo project for several schools in U.S. All of the changes bring important improvements and fixes several old bugs. Most of them are covered by automated tests.

Due to mismanagement by person in charge (me), all releases were uploaded only to the ppa:schooltool-owners/dev, but not to quantal. The last release on October 8th includes a few late features and critical bugfixes.
