No, not really.  As with any good presentation, what should be in it
depends on your audience.  In particular, are you talking about what the
ASF actually is and our background, or just the theories of the Apache
Way?  Is this about how we actually use it at the ASF specifically, or
is it about the general principles as guiding lights for some other
community?  Personally, I find explaining the basics of what the Way
should be different than explaining the actual implementation the
Foundation and many projects actually use, in terms of the specific
rules vs. best practices we have.

For overview info - what the ASF actually is - look at various State Of
The Feather presentations from the past couple of ApacheCons.

Along with the speakers/slides page, many folks use SlideShare.

Separately, I've long thought about trying to get a side thing doing
open source curriculum, so if you have any stories about your
experiences working with the university or the professors you're
partnering with, please share!
