"Hi there! I've recently converted my LinuxSlides [www.linuxslides.com] Web site to a Zope-backed engine (with MySQL as a data store). Everything seems to be going fine, but I'm just crossing my fingers, and I ask people to come to the site and check if everything is working fine and that it suits their needs.

What is LinuxSlides, you may ask ?

Well, it's an index to Linux and Open Source presentations material (usually, as slides, hence the name) submited by their authors or third parties and classified by topic and language (we've got currently entries in english, french, spanish, danish and japanese).

I've created LinuxSlides last June out of my frustration of not being able to attend every Linux / GNU / KDE / Open Source / Free BSD / ... conference / convention in the world. With every necessary administrative scripts now in place, LinuxSlides should be fully operational and deliver a useful service to Open Source enthousiasts, whatever be their primary interest (hacking, security, clustering, business, system administration...).

Of course, I'me pretty sure I'm currently only indexing between 1/10 and 1/4 of interesting material (about 70 presentations), so I ask everyone who has published such material somewhere on the Web, or who knows someone who has, to help the site grow by submiting it. It will be reviewed very fast thanks to the new engine. Many thanks to everyone who has already submitted slides to the site.
