Hi Gregor!

Thanks a lot for this initiative and for retaking the work to have a
Debian Academy concept well ready :)

I think it is great to have the model to develop a concept in the
repository. I agree with you about having discussions per week for each
section to define together the contents and write them in the
DebianAcademyConcepto.md file. I find nice the proposal about using Git
for the discussions too :D In the meantime let's keep going though the
mailing list.

I think your whole proposal is wonderful and it makes sense to me. I
would like to start sharing my thoughts about section 1 Persons:

Who is involved, as providers (organisers, trainers) and participants?
A: Teckids and Dominik George are participating as providers of the
infrastructure as well as participants and organisers, Debian
Developers, contributors, users, Moodle experts, system administrators,
programmers, users and people interested to push E-Learning about Debian
Development are organisers, currently we do not have trainers and the
participants around Debian Academy to take a course should be Debian
users. We do want to have participants who would like to be trainers or
instructors to create courses and to teach, due they will be the core to
share the knowledge about Debian Development to Debian users who are
interested to learn how Debian is made and how they could help in
different areas inside the Debian Project.

What do we know about them, their explicit or guessed needs and
expectations, their prior and/or required knowledge, skills, attitudes?
A: We know the current participants are people committed with Debian,
Free Software and with interest to spread knowledge about the Debian
Project in an audiovisual way.

What do you think everybody? Is this a good way to start the discussion
around the section 1?


A permissive license would only be more "free" than a license like the
GPL, when a society that allows slavery be considered more free than
a society that does not.
