I talked to the training cell in our college. They are interested in this, no doubt. But they first want me to detail out the entire procedure and the possible benefits to the students. They also want a briefing on Fedora. Can someone help me compile this draft? It must be as detailed as possible.

My idea is like this (will upload to the wiki),
Please review.


* Contributors suggest potential projects.

* Reviewed by peers, review committee.

* Listing accepted Projects .

* Please note: "Projects" does not mean coding only. It means whatever
is useful for Fedora and community as a whole.
For example, A few tentative projects, other than coding may be
"Creating an BN_IN live cd/Creating a kids spin/Translating fp.o in BN_IN "

* Assigning mentors and backup mentors.

* Fixing up timing and duration of project.

* Evaluation by mentor and review committee.


* Approach the institutes "Officially".

* Organise seminar/workshop at institutes. A lot of students will come
and participate. Most of them are potential users.

* Follow that up with another advanced workshop. Here you can identify
the potential contributors.

* Now let these selected students know about the mailing lists, irc
and help them identifying their areas of interest.

* Give them a small and easy test, only to identify their willingness
and eagerness to work.

* Assign them projects.

* Award them for good work.

This is a very rough draft, please help improving them.

If you have any question, please add it to
