Ho much interest is there in an OE developers meeting to work on issues
and code? OE has run these in the past very successfully. As the project
becomes more global, it is getting harder to get a critical mass of
people in one place at the same time.
I'd hoped we could organize something around one of the existing
conferences, but it is becoming apparent this approach does not work due
to people's schedules and general burnout issues with conference schedules.
To make this work, we need a critical of mass of developers with travel
money and some to provide a basic meeting/workspace.
Thoughts? I know this is above many people's pay grade, so please
forward this to your managers.
