Karl Fogel's book about producing open source software should be a
useful resource: http://producingoss.com/
The way he describes communities is pretty much how the SVN project
works, which (not incidentally) is how ASF projects ought to work :-)

Perhaps you can use parts of it as reading material for students.

Karl is has been working on a second edition since last year.
You can get his work in progress state which should be more up to date
with current practices from http://producingoss.com/vc.html
The first edition is from 2005, so somewhat outdated for today's students.
