We've arranged for the lacsi symposium, in santa fe:
 
http://lacsi.rice.edu/symposium/ to set up 2.5 days
 
for a linuxbios summit. The info on the linuxbios track,
 
hotels, etc. should be on that web page later today
 
or tomorrow. We hope to have vendor talks, and
 
discussions on where we as a community are going
 
with linuxbios.
 
 
The time of year is nice in santa fe, new mexico is
 
beautiful, the food is great, the hotel is very
 
pleasant: do consider coming! We'd like to see all of
 
you folks out here.

people of the three parties:
 
 
 
==== User Friendly ====
 
 
 
1. User Interface: What kind of default payload and/or user interface are we going to use? Do we want it to be command line or menu style?
 
 
 
2. User's Manual.
 
 
 
 
 
==== Developer Friendly ====
 
 
 
1. KConfig: Josiah England will show us his work on using KConfig to replace the current config tool.
 
 
 
2. Development Model: What is the svn commit and release process?
 
 
 
3. Device Object Model: People still complain about the complexity of the current device model. Can we make it easier to work with?
 
What is the impact of a new config too like #1 on the device model? How are we going to generate PIRQ/ACPI etc. tables?
