This is really great news. I am a student of 4th semester B.Tech in Information Technology at RCC Institute of Information Technology, Kolkata. I am sure my college will jump at this idea. It will really be glad to host Fedora conferences and seminars. We already have a functioning Linux Users' Group and this will be an added boost. The students will also lap up the idea of projects. I will definitely talk to the college authorities and let you know the outcome.

Yours sincerely,
Dipanjan Chakraborty.

This way we can make much more widespread effect as the student
partners themselves will spread Fedora within their peers and their

Also we may talk about officially tie-up with some colleges.

The basic idea is here[2].

Now the question id if this is worth taking up.
If yes, lets refine it here.
