* Focus on participating schools:

*: Bite off what we can chew and do it well.
+
*: Likely to attract a few more schools this way.
+
*: Stronger co-branding with the school, building communities of open source practitioners at each school v. one-offs spread all over.
+
*: Schools can provide housing (& board), hack space, and on the ground mentoring as part of the stipend to students.
+
* Bring in corporate sponsors who do the following:
+
*: Provide money for any efforts that occur within Fedora, or
+
*: Provide money that focuses on a specific set of FOSS projects important to the sponsor (which must be in Fedora or able to be brought in by the student,) and
+
*: Provide logistical support as part of a global volunteer team within the SIG - from t-shirts to payments.
+
* Students come from the participating schools and work on:
+
*: Fedora Project efforts, or
+
*: Other participating upstreams, such as where the school maintains its own upstream relationships, or
+
*: JBoss.org upstreams, or
+
*: Other upstream proposals running through our umbrella, requiring careful consideration by proposal committee.
+
* An important part of this is exposing the projects needs via something automagic, such as OpenHatch.org.

Purpose: Oversee, define, and improve on the Fedora Project's work with students contributing as part of their classwork or summer internship, and do so in a way that provides a general framework re-deployable by other open source projects seeking to do the same.
