Hi everyone,

At the FSOSS conference I attended a session on teaching open source.  
There are a group of people who are working on getting Open Source  
into school curriculums. I think this will be interesting to us as we  
continue to grow.

They have started work on a text book which I thought may be useful  
for us at some point. There are some links below to what they have  
built so far. I suppose I'm pointing this out so that we don't  
reinvent the wheel - as we work on our own documentation it's good to  
be aware of what's already out there. :)

Of course my favourite open source 'textbook' is Karl Fogel's: http://producingoss.com/
