Hi all,

I wanted to thank you all for making the GNU Classpath distro DevJam
(Europe) a great success by your participation in Oldenburg, help with
organizing, moral and/or financial support.

I seems we brought some harmony into the hearts and minds of the
different distributions (Ubuntu, SkoleLinux, Debian, Fedora, Suse,
Gentoo, OpenEmbedded) that participated. And being able to talk and
debug some issues with several of the upstream projects involved (GNU
Classpath, kaffe, gcj, Cacao) was definitely inspirational and

LWN asked me to write an article about the meeting that is currently
being published for subscribers (please support LWN it is a great
Next week it will be free for all.

Here is a list of other summaries and notes of the meeting:

- SkoleLinux summaries and pictures:
- OpenEmbedded ARM TODO list:
- GCJ maintainer/Fedora impressions by Andrew Haley:
- Gentoo DevJam braindump by Petteri Räty (plus presentation)
- DevJam Arrival and Schedule/Discussion notes:
- Debian Project leader notes:

(Please send me, or the devjam mailing-list, updates and additions.)

On request of several of the participants I have setup a mailing-list so
people can keep in touch and coordinate cross-distro/packaging things.
If you are interested please send an email to
The mailing-list has a public archive accessible through:

And if you are interested in participating or helping out with a
followup meeting please see the wiki about DevJam++:

Thanks again for all your enthusiasm!
And if you didn't make it this time I hope to see you at DevJam++.
