I flew over your page: http://shakthimaan.com/downloads.html
You already have some interesting materials to start with :) A careful
packaging of those and that of other opensource projects could be a
good start.

I welcome this initiative, but I think _here_, we have to clarify on
"training" and "documentation".

Our tasks as packagers/maintainers of FEL are like a CAD/EDA engineer.
Providing enough _documentation_ about how those tools are used is
also part of the job of any CAD engineer.

But as for _training_, this demands enough technical skills. However I
believe this will be a very good example how to make money with
opensource software :)

Or else better, Fedora Ambassadors(like us) trains students on how to
use those tools (like a crash course) to fund Fedora events around the
country hahaha.

By the way, Shakti, you have done good presentations in the past. Have
you thought about becoming a fedora ambassador ? If yes, I can help
you become one _Very_ soon :)
