I don't know how the various people who run these sites feel about it :),
but natural homes for Open-GIS-Edu documentation, video tutorials,
presentaions, PDFs, etc. could be:
A new open_gis_edu project on Intevation's Gforge server?
A new open_gis_edu area at freegis.org? (again hosted by Intevation)
If large video files etc are to be uploaded, access must be restricted
to known folks/caretakers in a CVS or SVN (or similar) system and hosts
have to be generous enough to serve the bandwidth.
I think the GRASS wiki is a fine place to collect links, text documents
and small still images until such time something more formal is set up.
