That's a good news. And if successfully done, will be a wonderful work.
Thanks for taking the initiative.

Please have a look here http://docs.fedoraproject.org/
The setup/installation guide is there.
However, the user guide isn't there for F10.
I shall take it up with doc team, if there is any plan for a user guide for F11.
Setup disks/Images will not be a problem.

They can ask any and all of their queries on fedora-india mailing list
I can assure you, they will get all their answers. :)

I think Debjit has already expressed his availability. I am cc'ing
fedora-india (sorry for x-post) for a few more people to help you out

You can organise a Fedora Activity Day,
more on this can be found out
As for fedora center, there is nothing such,
but you can push for a lug there and we will support it. (support may
not in terms of money.)

And one request, please don't send html mail to lists, change your
mail editor preference to plain-text while sending to the list.
Again, thanks for the good initiative.
I can assure you support from Fedora's part.
If you have any question, please ask.
