I will come.  Now that I have my passport (since the trip to England) I should be just fine.

I was not really planning on attending this year.

I’ll gladly change my mind if a few core contributors commit and want to spend some time in a hacker room talking + messing with projects.

I don’t have any topics to present, and I would not base my attendance on whether there’s interesting talks (from experience, if a talk is interesting to me, the room is usually overpacked).

Will any GNUstep people be at FOSdem? Prime material for a
presentation, I think...

The Distributions devroom will take place Sunday 4 February 2018 at
FOSDEM, in Brussels, Belgium at the Université Libre de Bruxelles.

For this year's distributions devroom, we want to focus on the ways that
distribution technologies can be leveraged to allow for easier
creation of a multi-verse of artifacts from single source trees. We also
want to continue to highlight the huge efforts being made in shared
environments around Build/Test/Release cycles.

We welcome submissions targeted at contributors interested in issues
unique to distributions, especially in the following topics:

- Distribution and Community collaborations, eg: how does code flow from
developers to end users across communities, ensuring trust and code

- Automating building software for redistribution to minimize human
involvement, eg: bots that branch and build software, bots that
participate as team members extending human involvement

- Cross-distribution collaboration on common issues, eg: content
distribution, infrastructure, and documentation

- Growing distribution communities, eg: onboarding new users, helping
new contributors learn community values and technology, increasing
contributor technical skills, recognizing and rewarding contribution

- Principals of Rolling Releases, Long Term Supported Releases (LTS),
Feature gated releases, and calendar releases

- Distribution construction, installation, deployment, packaging and
content management

- Balancing new code and active upstreams verus security updates, back
porting and minimization of user breaking changes

- Delivering architecture independent software universally across
architectures within the confines of distribution systems

- Effectively communicating the difference in experience across
architectures for developers, packagers, and users

- Working with vendors and including them in the community

- The future of distributions, emerging trends and evolving user demands
from the idea of a platform

Ideal submissions are actionable and opinionated. Submissions may
be in the form of 25 or 50 minute talks, panel sessions, round-table
discussions, or Birds of a Feather (BoF) sessions.

Submission Deadline: 03-Dec-2017 @ 2359 GMT
Acceptance Notification: 8-Dec-2017
Final Schedule Posted: 15-Dec-2017
