Yes, we are getting known more and more as a serious upgrowing major

I've talked a lot to Simon about OOo in general. At the social event I
met the lead community communicator for OOo. She is trying to get all
OOo packagers together and wants to find out where differences are in
the various ways we package OOo and how it does affect the end user
product and its quality. 

And I also talked to Rene, the Debian OOo packager. I've
learned a lot what's possible to do with one package. But I think I
will never write a 3k line buildscript for just one package :D

I also had talks with Fedora guys (their Xfce packager) and had a look
at a running Gnome shell that will probably be the major feature in
Gnome 3.0. And I've visited a talk about openjdk from a Sun guy. But
quickly left the java track right after that simple project
introduction :)

It was a lot of fun and nice to meet you guys. And now my little
hacking dog is so tired that he can't lift his had anymore.

Cu all next year.
