Not really no. I don't really have the time (I'm in the 4th year of a
medical degree, which keeps me fairly busy) to investigate sub-distros
or menu structures. Plus the mailing list server has been inaccessible
for a good week or more so the messages have been queuing up waiting
for moderation, so I only got a couple that came direct. However, I'm
quite happy with kicad being where it is (was?) and it was put there
at user request (iirc to be consistent with other electronics
programs) so I don't see any good reason to move it. Maybe there is
one, but I don't have the time, or frankly the inclination, to find
out what the problem is with Edu.

Anyway, if/when I get time (I get a couple of free weeks in the
summer) to package the next release, that is currently in RC, I think
from what I've read I'll be keeping it in the appropriate electronics
section as it is (was?).
