Just a quick note for those who have been unable to join in the Virtual
Summit Skype discussions thus far.
Everyone is more than welcome to comment on any discussions that have
taken place. We really would like to hear your opinions on these topics
(or any other topics you may wish to bring up). You need not be a
Committer or even an active developer -- we'd love to hear from anyone
and everyone who has interesting ideas/brainstorms of how to improve
the DSpace software platform.
There are several ways you may choose to add your thoughts:
* Join an upcoming discussion (20:00UTC via Skype, each day this week.
The connection info is on wiki page linked below)
* Send an email to dspace-devel, by responding to one of these Virtual
Summit emails (or starting a new thread)
* Post your comments/links/suggestions to the Virtual Summit wiki page
We look forward to hearing from you!
