And on and on and on.  Jeff Waugh has summarized this work nicely a
number of times.

I want to point out that the idea of developer and user training is an
excellent idea. I would love to be given the opportunity to be involved
in delivering this sort of training, as I'm sure would many others.

I think that there is a good template for this from the Trolltech/Linspire/KDE camp here:

I asked them about doing GNOME based desktop trainings, and they weren't entirely against it. I'm not sure that they have the expertise. I volunteered, but perhaps someone from the board contacting them would have more significance.

I think one of the most expensive parts of doing something like this is the facility. I believe the Sun office here by LAX has some training rooms. I'm more than happy to volunteer facilities I have no control over or responsibility for :)
