First Draft of Patch Attached
I've just completed a first draft of a tklpatch for IEP-IPP 1.0.006. The patch is intended to apply to the TKL LAMP stack. It brings IEP-IPP to an almost fully configured state: when first navigating to the site, it will ask for the sql password for IEP-IPP database. In this draft, the original code forces IEP-IPP to configure a fixed IP address. I think if another draft is needed, I'd like to try changing the code in init.dist.php (in /var/www/etc) to replace the IP address with $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] - which I realize could completely not work since I know next to nothing about php.
Note that Jedmeister called my attention to a version 2 left in an unknown state in SVN . After I have tested it and if our admin team has determined it's ready for production, I will guide my students to create a patch for 2.0.

Individual Education Programs are kept for US American students with exceptionalities. These IEPs are records of their academic, social, etc goals and objectives, their present levels of performance, and their accommodations and modifications. This appliance, IEP-IPP, keeps a database of these things and allows teachers and administrators to track progress.
It should be noted that in most cases, districts manage their IEPs with proprietary web apps. But in the cases of independent schools and especially private pay students, schools have resorted to paying IEP hosting companies that specialize in IEPs to maintain this data.
We have found IEP-IPP sufficient for our needs and our moving away from proprietary, outside vendors. After having in production for several weeks, our administrators find it superior then the proprietary pay solution Excent (http://www.excent.com) as well than proprietary solutions for local school districts. Hopefully, this can be a boon to private and nonpublic schools.
With the success we're having with it, I thought it would be worth sharing the build notes. If there's any interest at all, my team and I will build a TKLPatch.
THe virtual appliance for VMware that the build notes were derived from are available to http://9while9.com .

I'm not sure what's become of the formatting below, but I believe the notes are still at the very least readable and reproduceable.
