I don't think there's a universal definition of "community service".
Since your school is the one defining the term in this case, I suggest
that you ask them.  Our opinions matter little here.

Well, then, who do they trust?  Someone from Debian might be willing
to help record your hours, but that won't help if your school doesn't
trust them either.

Basically, I think you're talking to the wrong set of people here.
You need to pitch this idea to your school, not us.  Now, if you're
just asking if we think it might be worthwhile to pitch this idea to
your school, then I'd say yes.
