Subject: 2009 Linux Kernel Summit
Date: Friday 27th March 2009 04:53:12 UTC (over 7 years ago)
Hi folks, It's time to start kicking off the 2009 Kernel Summit planning process. This year, the Kernel Summit will be held in Tokyo, Japan, on October 18-20, just before the 1st annual Japan Linux Sympsium. As in previous years, I've set up a e-mail discussion list for people who are interested in making suggestions for this year's kernel summit. In the probably hopeless attempt to avoid the list address getting instantly harvested by spammers from all of the LKML archives, the list submission address and subscription URL can be found by executing the following perl script: #!/usr/bin/perl $at="@"; $AD=(gmtime(time))+1900; print "ksummit-" . $AD . "-discuss" . $at . "lists.linux-foundation.org\n"; print "http://lists.linux-foundation.org/mailman/listinfo/ksummit-" . $AD . "-discuss\n"; This year's program committee is: James Bottomley Jonathon Corbet Dirk Hohndel Dave Jones Greg Kroah-Hartman Chris Mason Andrew Morton Theodore Ts'o Arjan van de Ven If you have any questions, please feel to contact me or the entire kernel summit program committee. Our contact e-mail address can be found by taking the output from the above perl script and running it through the command: "sed -e 's/discuss/pc/'". We'll give people a few days to subscribe before we kick off discussion on the the new kernel summit mailing list. Regards, - Ted P.S. Note that we are aware that given the economic conditions this year, getting travel funding may be particularly difficult. For that reason, we have budgeted extra money for travel scholarships, and we will be working with various Linux Foundation corporate members who have historically sent many kernel developers to the Kernel Summit to try to make sure that everyone who gets an invitation will be able to attend.
