[kdahlquist@lmu.edu: [Bosc] abstract 30 accepted for BOSC lightning talk]


our abstract was accepted for a short presentation. Which is just fine
and all I ever wanted, really.  What is important for us does not happen
at presentation time but before and after the talk, obviously.

That said, I would be happy to revive the BOSC liveCD plans a bit to
the degree that introductory material could somehow be crafted and
submitted to Debian that guides the user to their possibilities they
have while using the distribution. And such an addendum, even if it only
makes it into sid at publication time, should be worth publishing jointly.

To sum up, my hope for the presentation is to bring Debian as close as
possible to upstream and add a disseminative role to it that is beyond
binaries towards education. The latter should help Debian-based
activities to attract public funding of some sort.

Please you all have a bottle of some nice juice (possibly fermented) to
celebrate now
