Ups, what did you expect to hear from me besides continuous updating
the CDD documentation, providing slides of talks and working on CDD tools?
I offered you help for the talk (like providing slides or whatever).
There are slides and detailed documentation available at

That's certainly bad. I would loved if you would have been able to attend.
We were quite less people from abroad and this shows once more that our
general CDD coordination has to be drastically enhanced. To accomplish this
I'd strongly suggest that at least one person of each CDD subscribes to the
list and can inform his other CDD fellows about important ongoing general
things if needed.

I've thought there would be a plenty of time for thus kind of
talks. I even now that our current DPL is a supporter of CDD and
I would not hesitate to ask him for intervention if necessary.
Thus I keep tbm in CC of my answer to your other mail.

Especially I hope that the suggestion which was raised up by Bdale at OSWC
in Malaga will be heavily discussed and will find some consensus. I tried to
give an overview about Bdales idea and all its variants which raised up until

I guess the Valencia talk is a good base, but should be turned into even more
technical information. I have heard that Cosimo Alfarano <email@example.com>
will attend Debconf and I would regard him even more competent to speak about
these terms than me.

I'm not sure about an IRC meeting because I left my office now for seven days
and have a plenty of (non-volunteer Debian :-() work here. Thus for the moment
I would like to go with a mail and I guess tbm will react on the next mail
(answering your previous one).
