2005.02.01 Meeting Notes


  • Next meeting topic: Version control. (Ken will talk about how (and why) he keeps his whole home directory in Subversion.)
  • While waiting for our speaker to arrive (he was stuck in traffic), we said 'hi' to Bill Kendrick via speakerphone and discussed 'urpmi', kernel patches, kernel development, and SMP in the kernel.

  • Installfests - The last Installfest (Jan. 22) had a mob. "Where are they?" Normally, Installfests bring lots of new members to the meetings!

  • Library - Henry said he would bring random books to meetings, so that people will be interested in checking them out.
