A few weeks back, I sent a call to arms for a conference I'm organising
with David Odin in Lyon next March. Since then, a lot's happened - we've
confirmed the dates and location - CPE Lyon, the 17/18/19 March 2006.
And we've started assembling a line-up. The main purpose of the
conference is to get the developers of different projects in the same
place, and talking. The other main purpose of the conference is to have
the developers of those projects meet their users (and vice versa), and
in general to chill out, maybe get some work done, and have a good time.
Jon Phillips will be giving a talk on Inkscape, OpenClipart and creative
commons, someone from Blender will be coming to present Project Orange
(I hope), and there will also be presentations of Scribus from mrdocs
and MrB, and the GIMP, although I don't know by whom yet.
The current plan is to have 2 very light days of presentations on Friday
and Saturday, and to consecrate Sunday completely to impromptu BOFs,
hackfests, demos, brainstorming sessions, whatever happens.
Should be fun, and I'd really like to see a good showing for Inkscape.
Can people interested in attending please add their names to teh GIMP
wiki at http://wiki.gimp.org/gimp/LibreGraphicsMeeting (we'll have a
better site soon).
