  • lxmaier: mspevack: i had an impression KarstenWade (quaid) was interested
  • mspevack: ok, we have a booth and a BoF, according to JackAboutboul, but beyond that, if Jack and quaid want to figure out who owns it, that's fine with me. I'd like there to be a single owner
  • mspevack: keep in mind that Red Hat itself will not be at LWSF, it will just be Fedora.
  • lxmaier: mspevack: since you seem to be the only one who knows anything about this event, do you mind making sure we DO have a single owner?

  • mspevack: this is an out of date item. The decision that was made, honestly I don't remember where, it was on famsco-list I think, was that it didn't make sense to do a FUDCon SF
  • quaid: aye, I think it was private email with a good group
  • mspevack: we prefer to do a FUDCon in Silicon Valley area, but sometime after the school year starts, and we can do it at a college (Standford?)
  • mspevack: I am in charge of that but I will be delegating :-)
  • quaid: and I'm your Sgt. on the ground :)
  • mspevack: There's 2 separate things -- 1) LWSF in August, 2) FUDCon NoCal in Oct/Nov
  • mspevack: IMHO jack owns LWSF and I own FUDCon with quaid likely to help a lot

  • mspevack: we'd like feedback on-list about that
  • lxmaier: mspevack: he sent a very long message outlining what will happen--and this was the first the group has heard from him
