Germany Chemnitzer Linux-Tage 2010 - 13. und 14. März 2010
Ok, now it's time to decide if we want to take part there and if we
want a booth.
I'll try to be there as every year, but because dogs are not allowed
there it will be quiet hard for me be early enough there to do all the
So who will take part and what's your opinion about a booth?

Subject: [FOSDEM-Dist2010] Post mortem: feedback please!
Since this is the first time we had a multi-distro devroom at FOSDEM, I
agreed to have a post-mortem chat with Pascal Bleser and Matthias Guns
to see if and what we could improve towards next year.
To do that properly, we will need feedback from as many people as
possible: distro coordinators, visitors, speakers, everyone. Please be
so kind as to let us know what you thought of the distro devroom. Even
if you send us a mail which consists of nothing more than something like
'I love it, please do so again' or 'it was crap, I hate it, please do
the distro devrooms again next year', it would be valuable to know that.
Also, it would be nice if people could forward this request in their
Things I'll note already:
- I need to ask for moderators a bit more early :-)
- More volunteers from other distributions would be nice. As it is, the
Debian crowd did almost everything, from moderating to manning the
cameras to cleaning up after the fact. There was some help from other
distributions (most notably from Dominique Dumont who did video in
H.1302), but not as much.
- People have asked for longer breaks in between talks. We'll think
about that for next year.
- If the devroom will be open on Saturday morning again, we don't need a
whole hour for set-up. We would need to know about that significantly
before the event, however.
The biometric identification system at the gates of the CIA headquarters
works because there's a guard with a large gun making sure no one is
trying to fool the system.

Subject: [arch-dev] Information on myself
Instead of hijacking the other thread, I'd rather start a new one if
you don't mind, and elaborate a bit.
My nick on the forum is "Gyroplast", registered since September 2002. My
activities pretty much ceased when creating the Wiki became the next
hot thing, roughly around the 0.8 Voodoo release, and rasat took over
the migration. The last installation guide I personally took care of
was for the 0.7 Wombat release, which is still floating around in
various forms on the net.
Usually, about 2 weeks before official release, Judd threw a beta/alpha
iso my way to try out and document in advance, and I invested about a
week and a dedicated machine with all kinds of strange old hardware
(tiny SCSI drives, modems, ISDN connections, various CD drives, etc.)
to find and document any issues and compatibility problems people may
stumble upon. Fixed a couple rare and stumping bugs that way.
In addition to the guide, I maintained a FAQ covering some "special"
setups or the common (at that time) problems in more detail than the
guide should. I wrote two Colorboot howtos and created a working i586
port before someone else "beat" me to it.
Last thing I remember doing was an attempt on unifying and improving
the Arch documentation systematically, a project I quit when the
Wiki approach became an apparently much better option in the long run.
It's a strange feeling, seeing this assumption from years ago prove
All this stuff is heavily outdated now, usually because the issues at
hand became obsolete through better code (bootsplash) or other projects
doing the same thing, but better (i586 port, documentation). Winter
2004 my studies were in full swing, a move to a different part of
Germany was on the radar, my now-wife still was my girlfriend, and I
simply was overwhelmed with OTHER stuff to do, thus let Dusty and Rasat
silently take over whatever needed to be done and vanished, lurking in
the shadows for the last couple years, watching Arch grow like weed,
developers come and go, and waiting for my life to settle. :)
I could never decide to "officially" leave, as I always thought things
would get better Real Soon Now™, but they never were. Until now, that
I was relatively active in the newbie corner of the forum, simply
because I knew the common pitfalls people always fell for during
installation and had some solid, broad experience under my belt in most
relevant fields concerning linux, networking and Arch in particular.
This has not changed by much, save for the fact that I've got a BA in
theoretical CS. I'm working as a JAVA (meh) developer of university
administration software used by more than 230 of germany's
universities, for 2+ years now.
Cutting a long story short, I consider myself as a jack of all trades
with a tendency to type too much, so taking care of the installation
guide at a time when nobody seemed to care about it at all except for
Judd, who had enough other things to do, was an obvious choice, and
just when I attempted to do what I can do best, standardizing and
sorting out the mess that was documentation, real life took over
brutally, putting an end to my beloved beancounting ways.
Well, enough for now, nobody's going to read all this anyway.
I wanted to offer the takeover of xfce if nobody else is available. Of
course I expect you all to treat me as if I were an absolute nobody,
which I effectively *am* after all, archlinux.org mail address or not.
If you're irked by the idea of giving somebody control over a vital
package like xfce just because he asks for it, I'm totally with you. :)
Either way, I'll dive into the existing codebase and see if I find
anything striking my fancy, just like 8 years ago, and things will work
out just fine for me. No need to drag me into devhood at all from my
PS: My mail address is still being correctly forwarded.
