Re: [Ubuntu] My actions after the IRC meeting (Was: Reminder and Agenta for IRC meeting)

Thanks for the report. Unfortunately I forgot to attend...

To anyone going to FOSS4G as well: there will be a bird-of feather

same (packaging/writing install scripts for debian/ubuntu) it would be
nice if you could drop by (no time fixed yet though).
