I haven't yet decided whether or not to go to debconf10, but I would
really like to have some discussion around dynamic languages around
JVM, especially Clojure. There are some interesting packaging problems
there. Also Polyglot maven is on the horizon and some discussion
around that will be great as well.
I need to make up my mind on whether I need to attend Debconf10 or
not. I haven't attended any debconf till date being too far away
requiring lots of money to attend. I have a visa though. But this
discussion really makes me attend it. I am quite passionate about
clojure and building an ecosystem for it in Debian.
