This is a very cool idea, and has actually come up recently a few times:
The Fedora University Tour has turned up an initiative to create an
open source curriculum with Seneca(?)
The f-advisory-board list were talking about restating the mentors program
Internships are being plotted
Hans De Goede (I believe) gets his students to port applications over
and packages them for Fedora
I'll try and find links later, but these are all things that are worth
following up and the people behind them may be good people to get in
touch with about creating something more uniform :)
