This is OT, but is adelie still doing Gentoo stuff? I haven't heard much since LWE 2 years ago..

I think that is where the take-home documentation is crucial. We can give specifics about our distribution (what makes it unique) that the person may not catch on the floor, or may not have time to talk to the devs about. If this has to take up more than one page, then that's fine (a front/back page might do it). We've got a couple of people in our publications office who might be willing to help out with a flashy design too. (they did the side banners for our LWE-SF display, we can reuse those this year as well)

Cool. Yeah, I think what we had over a year ago now is too outdated even if we found it, so why not start from scratch on this? FYI, here is a link to the slideshow that we had running on a pedestal at SF. We asked for content from all of the sub-projects, only hardened responded, so that's why there are a couple of slides that focus on that project. (content by me, design by blackace) Cheers! -C -- Corey Shields Gentoo Linux Infrastructure Team and Devrel Team Gentoo Foundation Board of Trustees -- gentoo-pr@g.o mailing list
