If it works, I can pledge to help with the connection to Fedora.  I've
been involved with some of our projects to connect/work with students
in various parts of the project.  Being a diverse project with a Linux
distro only a major output of our efforts, there is a lot of room to
engage various interests (writing, marketing, art/design, humanity,

That said, after reading David Humphrey's post, my nose smells a
potential connection between doing something for open data in the
realm of a web browser (hence, Firefox/Mozilla.)  Where Fedora might
provide varied diversions for diverse interests, Mozilla might be able
to guide all the interests into a unified effort more effectively.
