I think it is also worth mentioning another program in the Ubuntu
community, Packaging Training Sessions [1]. The idea behind this
project was to get developers to give a short session once each week
about some packaging-related topic. Users would also be able to use
this time to ask the instructor questions about the topic. Following
the session, the logs get posted on the wiki [2], where they serve as
a reference for other people looking for information on the topic.
Most of the sessions have been geared towards newer developers, but we
have also had a few for more experienced people. We have also had a
couple of sessions that were nothing more than Q&A or patch review
sessions (where contributors were able to get feedback on their
patches from our group of instructors/developers).

We have had a couple of sessions presented by Debian Developers about
some more Debian-specific areas of packaging (i.e. the BTS and
Packaging Perl Modules), and we would love to hold more of these
sessions in the future (they got a fairly nice sized turnout).
