I am delighted to hear this - I had actually asked about this very thing 
earlier in the week and had been told it wasn't happening this year, glad that 
it is going to happen informally at least...

I have at least two laptops that can be reflashed as far as I can tell from the 
coreboot site...  Possibly more, will bring the collection and see what can be 
done and what can't...

Definite? Thinkpad T400 and T500
Maybe - Thinkpad T61 and SL500
Less likely, but perhaps - A Dell laptop of about the same age, not sure of 
model offhand
Unlikely but - Dell "Inspiron Mini" and MSI "Wind Notebook" - both are ~2008 
vintage, use Atom CPUs...

None of the systems are currently backed up, but I have 4 spare 3.5" hard 

PSU's as needed.

I do regrettably need to keep one machine able to boot a fairly recent version 
of that evil proprietary OS as there is some stuff I must be able to run that 
has no GNU/Linux alternative....

Hi everyone,

The FSF isn't officially hosting a libreboot workshop at libreplanet
this year.

I'm proposing to set up an unofficial workshop at LibrePlanet 2018, so
that people at the conference can get their libreboot-supported
systems flashed. I myself (Leah Rowe, founder of libreboot) will not
be physically attending, unfortunately, but I do know that there are
others who would be willing to do this. I've already spoken to several
people on #libreboot IRC: sensiblemn (Kurt from Technoethical) is
willing. zyliwax is willing. I'm also CC'ing libiquity and
technoethical, asking them to take part.

obviously, any FSF staff e.g. sysadmins who want to take part and help
out, are more than welcome to. e.g. the staff at FSF who know how to
flash SPI chips, for libreboot installation

If anyone else on this list who is attending the conference wishes to
take part, please reply with your details including what equipment you
can bring.
