But the foundation could publish a syllabus and some sample exams, and
then licence training institutes and companies to offer the training
(with quality control of the training course) - in the way LPI does.

In fact, this would be a decent follow-on from the idea that Andy Oram
proposed (don't have the link right now) about having quizzes at the
bottom of documentation pages to ensure that the material is
understandable and that the lessons to be learned are absorbed by the
reader - both to help the reader validate their learning, and to get
live feedback on documentation quality to identify areas in need of

All of this stuff could do with what Edd Dumbill suggested some time ago
- an editor dedicated to maintaining, organising, and improving GNOME's
developer documentation. One more thing we don't really have the budget
for (yet) :)
