Did you just teach how to install/remove stuff? If so, a bit on packaging
might be useful, ie how to create debian packages -- both from scratch and
a modified package using apt-source, etc. Also, how to run an apt archive
might be nice. To be able to produce a bunch of extra custom packages in a
repository would be very handy in an environment with lots of linux
Source code repositories (eg CVS, SVN, GIT, ...) are a very useful way to
track the changes both of source code and of config files, documents, etc.
They might not have time to become experts, but they could get a good
introduction to the concepts.

I would have thought databases and programming would be taught separately
so the PHP stuff should be fairly redundant. Perhaps not though.
