Please add your name to the list if you will attend. Also, please indicate the following:
- Put an X in the $$$ column if you need funding to attend. We'll use these answers to help figure out budgeting for the event.
- Put a "Veg" in the Veg column if you would like vegetarian fare for any meals that we provide during the event. We'll try to err on the side of vegan so no one will be left out.
- Put your T-shirt size in the Size column, so we can have an idea about what sizes to have available.

BarCamp Sessions with Owners
|State of the Wiki and/or Wiki Editing to the EXTREME!||What we're doing now, what we should be doing, and why you should care, with some information on some more advanced wiki-editing techniques||Ian Weller (if attending) and Karsten Wade (if he wants)|
|Git for Dummies, by Dummies||Learning from git masters is wonderful if you can do it. What about learning the simple, getting-started bits from someone who's just good at teaching?||Paul W. Frields, hopefully with heckling from a git master when he gets lost|
|Write Docs with DocBook XML||DocBook XML is by far the preferred documentation method for Linux and FOSS. Some Fedora contributors have written entire books in DocBook! Learn how it works -- it's easier than you think, and more powerful than you imagine.||Paul W. Frields|
|Configuration Management||Configuration Management with puppet, Puppet Common Modules and puppetmanaged.org||Jeroen van Meeuwen|
|Comps||Brainstorm session on comps capabilities and usage and renewal(?)||Jeroen van Meeuwen|
|Spins||Creating custom spins, spins process. Include information on what's a Remix, as opposed to a Spin, and how the guidelines differ for each.||Jeroen van Meeuwen|
