Re: Another "Women in Open Source" Session

Hey Hanna,

It went pretty well :-). Room was full of supporters. I plugged the success of Debian-Women a bit, so we might expect to see more newbies. At the end one of the panelists proposed a general discussion list about Women in Open Source and we asked for a show of hands and saw 100% interest (about 200 people, including Larry Wall and other prominent FOSS leaders). Still working out the best place to host it, but we have an offer from OSI (which would be called women@opensource.org). They did an audio recording of it (videographers not available) so we'll have that to offer DW for its collection :-).

Meanwhile, I had proposed a women@apache.org list after my 5 minute lottery lightning talk at ApacheCon EU went over extremely well. There has been quite a lot of "debate" about the idea at the ASF Board level, and they've started a private (archived but not publicly) list for the women already at Apache to discuss how we would like to proceed...so, progress! Unless you count the comment that the list should be called "Apache Squaws" :-).
