Someone should take care of

  • setting a deadline,
  • collecting the PDF files from the authors and,
  • have them printed in same quality at a local copy shop.

Who will attend the meeting

One of the main reasons people attend the meeting is that you can meet, and talk directly to, other developers, whom you would otherwise meet only virtually (on mailing lists, emails, newsgroups, irc etc). We expect many lead developers and contributors to be present, so if you have never met them, you can't miss this occasion!

The following is a list of people of GNUstep fame (in alphabetical order) who have confirmed (or denied) that they will be able to join us at the GNUstep meeting at FOSDEM 2007:

Name Presence Special comments
Helge Hess yes OpenGroupware.org
Lars S.-Helldorf yes -
Nicola Pero yes gnustep-make
Richard Frith-Macdonald yes gnustep-base

If you plan to join us at the meeting, please let us know here in the wiki. Knowing how many people will attend will help in organizing the event, and will encourage other people to join.

Who is at the booth

We should have teams of 2 plus one volunteer for fallback if someone can't attend at all. And, please be there!

Note: Does anyone has a projector for the talks ? The Fosdem organisation will gives us one if needed, but having ours would be more convenient (if only to have a good one, remember last year)

  • Request a Devroom
  • Request additional Presentation to the main audience
  • Clarify Size of Booth tables, posters with FOSDEM organizers
  • Clarify number and price of Merchandize to create
  • Define Demos

  • A. Fedor
  • H. Hess
  • N. Roard
  • N. Schaller
  • volunteers welcome!

Older Material/Thoughts (to be deleted when worked in)

Few ideas

Extract

  • use Live CD - even rereleased last version
  • Perhaps some GNUstep merchandize, like GNUstep T-shirts, GNUstep mouse pads,

GNUstep stickers, etc. Though I'm not sure we could so easily afford these yet. Quickly lurking through the Internet, I calculated that 20 T-shirts come to around 60 EUR, 30 T-shirts to ~85 EUR, and 50 T-shirts around ~130 EUR.

  • perform a [Survey]

Portability demonstration

Use several machines side-by side with:

  • GNUstep with Camaelon, and perhaps the Etoile system
  • some Apple hardware for showing that the same apps can run on GNUstep and OSX
  • some Linux machine
  • some BSD machine
  • some x86 hardware to show that GNUstep is even available on Windows
  • some other hardware (connected to the LCD we had) showing a presentation/video on GNUstep - something flashy, with sound and talk
