First, many, many thanks for doing this, Daniel!  I really like the
idea of developing open content for use in courses like this.  I
will keep watching the repo!

One thing that I don't see there is build tools / systems and
artifact repositories.  It is no accident that Ant and Maven were
developed @apache.  Maybe after the scm discussion, you could add
something on making it easy to build checked out code, which is key
to making it easy to get involved.  That would segway naturally into
the evolution of build and dependency management systems.
