Will do, thanks this is a great place to start. Also will be contacting U of T, my sister is a 3rd year ECE student there. Planning on contacting as many CS and ECE listservs as I can find. Is this permitted? Are there any procedures, regulations, or recommendations when it comes to cold contacting mailing list registrars with a request to share our letter informing students (and faculty?) of the opportunity to "work on complex and interesting libre hardware/software and receive tax deductible charitable donations for their contributions?"

After university engineering and computer science mailing lists, maybe I should try tech and hardware forums? Perhaps both the professional and enthusiast tech forums, because people like Jacob and I watch things like Gamer's Nexus on youtube, so there may be others that we can find there?

I agree. I'll write something up and post it on the wiki, will post the link here when its up.

In order to fulfill my obligation to be fully transparent working on the project, how should I be sending these emails such that they are publicly available? Or does the transparency only apply to the discussions of the design of the SOC and not to every individual back-and-forth between myself and community administrators? I feel like since I am communicating on behalf of Libre-SOC that these emails should be transparent... however I'm not sure. Please provide guidance on this.

the bugtracker itself, and this:

oh you mean private conversations with people whom you are considering
approaching?  hm, that's a tough one as without them agreeing to the same
transparency requirements, we cannot "force" them to do that.

however if they decide to commit to helping out, that will involve them
going through the onboarding process, which involves making it clear that
the transparency requirement exists.

this can be scary for them, so takes a bit of care and encouragement. it
was definitely intimidating for me, back in 1995, to first be talking on
the samba mailing lists.  i got over it.
