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/
