"We had asked CSE and ECE depts. to “give us list of 16 students
willing to participate and if more then 16 are interested then select
best among them based on your judgement.” We wanted to save time and
not get involved into selection and thought departments are best to
do so quickly. "

You were probably just lucky.

I would like to emphasize that this may or may not be the case in
every Institute. In future, please let the sessions be open to all,
and let the students, whoever is interested, join the lab, mailing
list, IRC discussions.

Nothing can/should prevent anyone from contributing or working with
Fedora. Please inform the rest who couldn't make it that they can
still participate in fedora-india, or #fedora-india discussions.

Keep up the good work!
