Fwd: Text Layout Summit preparation IRC session

Hi folks.
A text layout summit sponsored by OSDL is happening in Boston this
weekend. We will be discussing various issues to do with text layout
on the free desktop.

We would appreciate input from anyone, particularly from the language
communities which use complex scripts.

The main aim is to plan to make things consistent across the desktop.

There will be an IRC meeting about it at 2100UTC[1] on Wed 4 Oct on
##fonts on freenode, and there is discussion on the wiki.

Hullo again,
The time of the Text Layout summit is fast approaching. Looking
forward to meeting many of you there :)

We will have another IRC meeting at 2100 UTC[1] tomorrow (Wed 4 Oct).

We still need to decide on the schedule. Some of the agenda items
don't have an owner. If someone doesn't want to take care of them
we'll dump them and do the things that people there care about.

I've made a quick arbitrart split of the items between the days. This
isn't set in stone and we can discuss it on IRC or in mail.

If you own an item could you please put on the wiki how much time you
would like allocated for it. We would like to have as much discussion
as possible so presentations shouldn't be long, no more than half of
allocated time.

Once we have that we can make a schedule.

I have created links to empty wiki pages for each item (except
http://live.gnome.org/UnifiedTextLayoutEngine which has been busy
already :) ) so please fill them up with what you are going to say :)

We are planning to stream audio live and interact with people on IRC.
We still need to make sure of the details of that. It would be helpful
to know who is planning to be listening so there is now a 'remotely'
section of attendees.

Further news will only be on the wiki so please make sure you look at it.

If there is anyone else in your communities that would be interested
in the discussion please let them know about it :)
