- The ATK press release for LinuxWorld. People were generally
comfortable with it with the current modifications (less hype,
something to download, clear that the target is developers).
- A press release for 1.4.1. Timing on this release is approximately
5-6 weeks, which works well for a press release. Need to get list
of enhancements to Leslie so she can draft something.
- Email/CVS policy. Went over current provisions briefly, no
- Membership committee. Dan indicated that things were moving
slowly and we might need to add someone else to the committee
to help out.
- Apparently there is an opportunity to have a GNOME/KDE interoperability
hothouse at the X Technical conference/ALS. Rooms and network
connections are available, but someone would have to organize,
make sure that the right people showed up, etc.
