Let's schedule a video call to work on this together for 1h or so. The

Sure. Let me know a suitable time for you. Most probably it should be suitable for me too.
Everyone else who might be interested is invited to join (I guess).

Ok. Understood. I can become primary admin, but due to time 
restriction on my end, I'd need you to help with major parts of the 
diligent admin tasks.

Of course I can try to help. But you should familiarize yourself with the admin guide, which explains what is expected from an admin: https://developers.google.com/season-of-docs/docs/admin-guide

In general, it is not a full time job, so you should be able to find time for it.
Admins are expected to define the requirements of the project (project proposal), to negotiate with any applicants about the details, and to select a suitable technical writer. Then fill the application form on GSoD (deadline March 24).

If the project is accepted, admins and the community help the technical writer to get familiar with DebianEdu, if needed. The documentation project lasts for 3 to 6 months (depending on the agreement with the technical writer). Each month the admin has to fill a progress report form, evaluating the work of the technical writer so far. There is also a final evaluation, and a case study report that summaries the whole project.
There are also some details on the timeline: https://developers.google.com/season-of-docs/docs/timeline

If the project is accepted by GSoD, the admin should also create an Open Collective account, in order to receive the grant from GSoD and send it to the technical writer (which also should have an Open Collective account). A percentage of the grant may also go to the admin, or organization, or may be used for the expenses of the project, etc. These details should be explained in the project proposal that is submitted to GSoD.

We can discuss more details in the meeting (most probably I have forgotten some).
