Venue ideas

If you know somewhere that might be willing to host, please note it here

UK - there are some companies and universities I (Stu) could talk to, but only tentative ideas

Topics

  • prepare for desktop summit (this would be insanely valuable on its own as

very little has happened on the KDE side so far)

  • finish promo booklet (assuming we can get some of the folks who've been

leading the charge here to come)

  • create some wiki pages for important repeatable promo tasks
    • ensure we have an up to date page with boilerplate slides for use at conferences, LUG meetings, etc to introduce people to KDE so people don't have to reinvent the wheel every time
    • a page for all things related to conferences that people might need, like having all source files for flyers, stickers, install media, etc in one spot
    • organize pages for major initiatives like ISMP ("Join the game") and the upcoming corporate sponsorship campaign
  • other misc tasks (mailing list cleanup, other wiki organization)
  • (pgquiles) get better exposure and more involvement for Windows/Mac efforts. For both users and developers. Non-Linux platforms badly need more developers, and Windows and Mac could bring many new developers in.
  • (pgquiles) "Sell" (advertise, not $$$) kdesupport, kdelibs, kdepimlibs and calligralibs (former kofficelibs) to third-parties as just one more module to Qt. Important: commercial support. See my mail to the kde-promo list for more info.
  • team building....in other words: meet each other in person, drink beers

(or whatever you prefer), hang out

  • pushing KDE EDU (esp. at schools)
