Yes, that would be my job.  Or at least it's supposed to be.  Lionstone and
I are working out a series of guidelines and scripts for encoding.  They
will be stored off of the wiki's page on OGG
<http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Ogg>when finished.

In the meantime, I would be more than happy with advising him and/or
encoding his video for him in Ogg/Theora.  Basically he's going to want to
use ffmpeg2theora, and possibly encode his audio in speex instead of vorbis,
depending on what his audio consists of.
