Chaos Communication Camp is happening the upcoming week and as with any CCC event we have Arch team members attending. Jelle, shibumi, coderobe, alad, david and me hanging around different assemblies.
I have registered a meetup, similar to the one we did at 35C3, on Thursday 22nd of August 19:00. The plan is to have 2-3 short talks. So far we have planned one where Jelle talks about contributing to Arch, and I'll have one talking about Arch Linux and reproducible builds. If you have a suggestion feel free to email me.
After this we will try have a Q&A/Community discussion session like during congress. It worked well and people seemed to enjoy it the last time.

I also packaged Arch Linux stickers. A lot of them, so come find me :)
Thought it'd just summarize short how the event went. The reserved time was 2 hours, but we wound up roughly using 1 hour. The first 30 minutes was spent with me and Jelle holding an talk each. After some questions after each we talk we help a Q&A with the team members present. We had around 50-60 people attending the event.
This was: Jelle, Alad, coderobe, shibumi, David, kpcyrd and me.
The questions was some technical, like hardening kernel configs, security like protection of gpg keys and such, and some social, how is Arch able to stay afloat with no foundation and no commercial backing. Some followup questions to the talks where also taken.
After the ended Q&A we shared some stickers and some attendees stayed behind and asked some more questions. We promptly went out of the workshop tent and had some great whisky at a nearby event :)
All in all a nice and smooth meetup.
