With main heading you mean the word "community"?
> So, you want more backgrounds?:)  

Yes :) As you can see I use four main subjects:

- History
- Metadistribution
- Community
- Organisation

The "Metadistribution" has
-- Portage
-- Init Scripts
-- Installation Choices
-- Rapid Development
-- Learn

If you would be able to make backgrounds for these themes I believe most
subjects that can rise in a presentation (generally) are discussed.

To have dev space you need to become a developer. To become a developer you
need to continuously make considerable contributions to the Gentoo project.
If you're interested in becoming a developer, just contact me off-list :)

If you just need space, I'm sure another solution can be found.

> Whats next on the agenda after the backgrounds?

Good question. I was thinking about having a document online on how to make
decent presentations. There are many rules to this so it would be nice if we
can sum those up. This would also include how to act properly during the

Another thing would be to have "official" presentations online (I am
hoping for magicpoint because it is easily added to CVS and very small :). To
be more precise, I hope that some of the aspects of the Gentoo project are
available as presentations (in cooperation with the projects). For instance a
presentation on "The Gentoo Hardened Project". These presentations can then
be used by interested developers to give a presentation on the subject in
their local LUG or at some free software conference.

Non-presentation related, but still interesting, is to have a design out
which can be printed as hand-outs for distribution on events, or even a press
map in case a presentation is made at a more official conference.

That's a bit of the things that are on my mind.
