I think Linux Hotel is a good idea, but I hope we'll fit into the room.
There're three things up in my mind i want to share:
1) is it possible to do a phone conference using XMPP? This would be a nice
feature to connect others, who don't have the time/money to travel to
2) Let's start a UI Workshop: Everyone who has an idea gives a lightening
talk (~2-5 mins) to present his/her idea. Then we start discussing (or even
arguing) what is good and what's bad and how to integrate it into the system
to get a consistent UI/API for SHR.
3) What has to be done to make SHR/FSO devs life easier and comfortable?
What frightens people from devoloping new apps/joining team. (I think one
big point is, that it is not really transparent, what is going on/what has
to be done)
02-05.04.2010 //imho to early
14-18.05.2010 // colliding with program @ LinuxHotel
21-24.05.2010 // nearly perfect, but maybe i want to celebrate my birthday,
04-08.06.2010 // collision
i try to call them today to ask for the dates.
here's a picture of last year's attendees
P.S.: No there won't be any LPI certificates available
