I can't find another way to ask a question about SoC in general, so this is off topic for SoC2011.
The SoC interest me very hard, as I'm very concerned about Drupal growth and think we can learn most from the SoC experience to bring young tallent to Drupal, just consider the tallent SoC has added to Drupal.
We are planning an open space on education and as you can see in the description, the SoC experience is very relevant for this call. So I'm hoping some of the SoC mentors or organizers would come to the open space and share their experience and discuss how we can learn to do other educational projects for the community. The call is announced to many groups on education, but it seemed wrong to audience it for SoC2011, so here is the link: http://groups.drupal.org/node/152964
