Would it be worth organising regular, purely technical meetings? Do
people have enough issues to discuss to make it worthwhile? Can
GNU/Linux users converse without pints in front of them? :)
FOSS is a huge area - I don't think it'd be too hard to come up with an
interesting topic or presentation (like we see at the AGM) every couple
of months... or maybe it would? It could also be an opportunity for
people to work together on computer problems. I realise the days of the
installfest are all but dead with the installers on newer distros and
improving hardware support in the kernel but I would assume there are
still plenty of issues out there frustrating people.
Does the mailing list make this idea redundant? Would it be worth
announcing meetings publically so all whe are interested in GNU/Linux
but might not have even heard of LUGs could attend?
