A great effort by Shiv and Ananth! Special thanks to Madhu for his help with the logistics. And countless others who helped us run this event. Thanks guys!
Here is the summary by Shiv:
Here is a quick update, the event happened as planned and it was fun !
What we came out with : 35 specs for softwares listed at
http://www.opensolaris.org/os/project/bosug/news (the page also has
the specs that were created)
We were 9 of us, of which 5 were students.
Except for Ananth and Myself who had some familiarity with the tool,
everybody else were first timers.
It was fantastic - be it the initial unexpected hiccups with
networking issues, setting up the environment or getting the first
spec file and each one of us earning our lunches !
Thanks to Laca for being online till 3am(his time) ! and also to
tomww(IRC name) for coming online !
To Kira for giving it a good shot at it (again at 3am her time)
To Madhu for the greate job of providing the infrastructure.
To Ananth for sharing the planning efforts. Apart from many things
thanks for managing the online IRC participation on #bosug.
And to all who participated for the wonderful weekend that we had....
