Been talking to people about a report, and its clear one ought to be
written. The fact a sponsor is asking for it is just serving as a nice
kick in the arse ;-). I seem to be trying to orginise it, but if an
actual dc6 person could, that would be wonderful. Felipe, do you want
to take the lead?

progress so far:

* ganneff has offered to set up an SVN repo for the report, this
afternoon or tonight. 

* aj has offered a "bits from the dpl" section, in the manner of
Branden's one in the dc5 report. 

* I'm trying to find someone from the video team, currently holger, to
write a bit about that side of things.

the plan:

* write a report in size / standard between the dc5[0] and dc6[1] reports.

* Write in docbook, have some build process to get
pdf/ps/html/whatever. Coordinate with SVN. If you are writing a bit,
there is no need to write docbook or have write access to svn,
I/someone else can sort it out. 

* Since we can't just smash it out, its important that folk write a
little bit on the stuff they worked on. So I'm going to chase up the
folks who did: money, talks, accom, video, infrastructure, press and
localteam folk to say how it was orginized. 

* Can folk send in their impressions? I'll also borrow stuff from
planet, after asking permission...

* number would be good. 

Clearly it would be nice to get arse in gear on this, and this plan is
a bit vague/crap, so I'll try to get faw on irc tonight and nail it
down more. Any suggestions, comments, abuse?

Anyone offering work would be very much appreciated. Really, I'm the
wrong person to try and orginise this, and I wasn't there, so I
shouldn't be writing.
