1 Hello Gentelmen,
3 I wanted to cover two things. I'm setting up a conference in Chicago
4 called Flourish, I've included the main email I forwarded to other lists at
5 the bottom of this email, I was wondering if gentoo wanted to be represented
6 or make an appearance at the event. I'm not sure where all the gentoo dev's
7 are located, I'm sure we have some all over the place. Of course one way or
8 another, everyone in the gentoo community, as well as FLOSS is invited to
9 attend.
11 We have an opening event on Friday where everyone who wants can setup tables
12 to collect resumes, show-case a product or whatever they desire. We're also
13 trying to setup a battle of the distros. Which should be layed back fun
14 time just spend 10 minutes saying why distro X is the best and we have a
15 vote from the audience etc.
17 Either ways, if gentoo is interested in participating please contact me
18 directly.
