Just a friendly mail about the next Irish OpenSolaris User Group meeting.
We'll be discussing project indiana and will have one of the key
folks involved in
that project Glynn Foster (some of you folks may know him from gnome).
Heres the announcement
We're happy to announce the 12th Irish OpenSolaris User Group meeting.
Topic: Project Indiana
Date: Thursday 12th July 2007
Time: 7pm onwards
July's meeting is a little earlier than usual: we're delighted that
Glynn Foster will be in the country and has agreed to give a talk on
Project Indiana, a project that aims to create a new distribution of
OpenSolaris that's more familiar to users of GNU/Linux.
If you've been keeping up with OpenSolaris, you'll know that this has
been a highly anticipated, and much talked about project, and it's an
exciting time for OpenSolaris at the moment.
Along with his role in helping to define the Indiana project, Glynn was
elected onto the OpenSolaris Governance Board (OGB) during the elections
in May this year, so you should use this opportunity to pick his brains
while he's in this hemisphere!

please feel free to spread this announcement as widely as you can - this
is a rare opportunity to hear from someone on the OGB.
As usual, we'll be recording this meeting, and adding it to our podcast,
which is available at:
We haven't yet finalised a venue for this meeting - if we have to, we'll
hold it in the Sun offices in East Point Business Park near Clontarf,
but if anyone else would like to offer a venue that's a bit more
central, please let us know! I'll send an update on Tuesday next week.
