Hi, first of all let me state here that I think debian-installer is simply awesome! You - you know who you are - did a great job!! (*) I've been working with d-i for more than a year now and I'm still impressed (even though I know those missing features and problems ;) . I will continue to use both d-i and FAI (*2) as I think both systems have their pros and cons and both systems will continue to improve and both will have their share in future. Anyway, this mail is about debconf5 in Helsinki. At first, I want to bring the idea of a d-i workcamp before the "official" debconf on topic. debconf5 will happen from july 10th til 18th with a debcamp for teams working on specific topics preceding it. Since I hope/believe/think sarge will be released by then, IMHO this could be a great opportunity to work together on post-sarge designs, development goals and implemetations. I've come to think about this, because this tuesday (in two days) the call for papers for debconf5 ends and I was thinking about talks and workshops I would like to give or attend. I would really like to see a talk or workshop there talking about a.) d-i design and pre-sarge development and b.) post-sarge design and development - so others can get a good overview how d-i has been done and how they could join d-i development. Please, someone ;-) submit this (or a similar) proposal for a talk or workshop! I would offer help in preparing the talk (and/or give the pre-sarge part of it). regards, Holger (*): I wanted to state this for some time now - the last time, when my article about d-i got published. Guess I was to shy to mix those topics :) (*2): there will be a FAI developer meeting in April where I'll start integrating parts of FAI "into d-i."
