My idea is like this (will upload to the wiki),
Please review.


* Contributors suggest potential projects.

* Reviewed by peers, review committee.

* Listing accepted Projects .

* Please note: "Projects" does not mean coding only. It means whatever
is useful for Fedora and community as a whole.
For example, A few tentative projects, other than coding may be
"Creating an BN_IN live cd/Creating a kids spin/Translating fp.o in BN_IN "

* Assigning mentors and backup mentors.

* Fixing up timing and duration of project.

* Evaluation by mentor and review committee.


* Approach the institutes "Officially".

* Organise seminar/workshop at institutes. A lot of students will come
and participate. Most of them are potential users.

* Follow that up with another advanced workshop. Here you can identify
the potential contributors.

* Now let these selected students know about the mailing lists, irc
and help them identifying their areas of interest.

* Give them a small and easy test, only to identify their willingness
and eagerness to work.

* Assign them projects.

* Award them for good work.

This is a very rough draft, please help improving them.

If you have any question, please add it to
