Report from foss.in/2005
Since, I am not 'valid' poster of this list, my mail me
be blocked by listadmin! I asked DWN to report for foss.in/2005
conference in India and Debian activity during event. Joey can answer
about this post. Thanks Joey to encourage me.
foss.in/2005 was earlier known as Linux Bangalore -YEAR  Starting
from 2001 it was highly sucessful in terms of both - attendences and
speakers. Speakers was from all over the world. The conference was
renamed in aim with to change focus to particular city and only to
linux - it is now represents more wider choice of Free and Open Source
Software - foss.in itself represnts website name! 
Debian at foss.in!
India, the second largest nation in the world - which is top in IT all
over, lacks contibutation towards FOSS and particulary Debian! There
are only 2 active Debian Developers in India. Jaldhar Vyas  who
headed Debian-IN Project  was worried about the situation. Jaldhar
made it possible to India. Thus, two talks was arranged in conference!
Jaldhar spend most of time in meeting people to explain and answers
question about Debian and Debian-IN. Vaidhy who was DD in past helped a
lot during jaldhar was busy with other work. Debian-IN BOF was
organised and it was successful. Many people signed each other's key
and make thier way towards become Debian Developer.
What Next ?
Lots more! We expect that there should be 20 Debian Developers in
near future. Representation at DebConf6  from India will also make
some difference in situation too. If you are coming to India, please
make announcement and arrange to meet people so that more key-signing
party can be organise.
Well, People behind foss.in is here  which includes speakers and oraganisers.
