I think there are a lot of people chomping at the bit to get something
done. A framework to work inside of would help a lot. But beyond
just being a rep... we need some guidance on how to tell students and
faculty how to take on Fedora relevant work as academic projects.

work I want to encourage students to work on. I don't need a list of
ideas, nor do I need a list of mentors. I'm pretty sure I can find
individual existing contributors who would take on a student if I
knock on the right doors inside our project.
But what I need to know is some advice on how to approach both
students and faculty in a way that they continue to be open to the
subtly corrosive effects of my continued manipulation. What are the
selling points that I need to stress to the students? What are the
selling points I need to stress to the faculty who are going to end up
giving students some sort of academic credit and possibly a grade for
the work as part of their academic career?
