Subject: [advocacy-discuss] 12th IE-OSUG meeting - Project Indiana From: Tim Foster
Hi all, We're happy to announce the 12th Irish OpenSolaris User Group meeting. Topic: Project Indiana Date: Thursday 12th July 2007 Time: 7pm onwards Location: TBD July's meeting is a little earlier than usual: we're delighted that Glynn Foster will be in the country and has agreed to give a talk on Project Indiana, a project that aims to create a new distribution of OpenSolaris that's more familiar to users of GNU/Linux. If you've been keeping up with OpenSolaris, you'll know that this has been a highly anticipated, and much talked about project, and it's an exciting time for OpenSolaris at the moment. Along with his role in helping to define the Indiana project, Glynn was elected onto the OpenSolaris Governance Board (OGB) during the elections in May this year, so you should use this opportunity to pick his brains while he's in this hemisphere! - more about Project Indiana, and the latest draft of the Problem Statement at: http://www.opensolaris.org/os/project/indiana http://www.opensolaris.org/os/project/indiana/documents/problem_statement/ This announcement is available at: http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/os_user_groups/ie-osug/iosug-12/ please feel free to spread this announcement as widely as you can - this is a rare opportunity to hear from someone on the OGB. As usual, we'll be recording this meeting, and adding it to our podcast, which is available at: http://mediacast.sun.com/share/timf/ie-osug-podcast.rss We haven't yet finalised a venue for this meeting - if we have to, we'll hold it in the Sun offices in East Point Business Park near Clontarf, but if anyone else would like to offer a venue that's a bit more central, please let us know! I'll send an update on Tuesday next week. cheers, tim
