Next weekend some of us (@paperdigits, @n8willis, and more?) will be converging on the Southern California Linux Expo, SCaLE 18x to help with a “Libre Graphics” track on Sunday. We’ve been trying to get some traction at SCaLE to present various graphics-related projects and we’re now entering our third year.
In spite of my being incognito for much of this past year, I really want (need) to get back into the swing of things and actively working with the communities again. (That’s a post for another time ).
As such, we have reserved a presentation slot at the track for us to give updates on the various projects. We are trying to gather as much information about all the wonderful projects here (among others) to present. This is where I’m turning to the community for a little help…
If you have a moment, can you please visit this hackmd document:
and please fill in any relevant information for us that you may have?
We only need a handful of highlights to report on, so a few bullet points of major advances over the past year would be very helpful.
In particular I would love to get more information out there about projects that might not be as well known yet. So I’d love if folks like @CarVac, @Carmelo_DrRaw, @ggbutcher, @LebedevRI, @damonlynch, @lock042, @heckflosse and any other project owners/maintainers/packagers could maybe take a few minutes and help us to spread the word.
Don’t worry about proofreading or making it perfect, @paperdigits and I will put it all together into a presentation for Sunday. If you have a relevant graphic or something visual that would help also! If you contribute some information, feel free to add your name to the bottom of the document (or account name, whatever’s comfortable for you).
Also, remember that we are coming up on the Libre Graphics Meeting 26-29 May in Rennes, France. We will share the material for SCaLE with them (unless someone else provides individual reports to them). This way we can combine/re-use the material for everyone.
As always, feel free to ping us if you’d like, and you can always find some of us hanging around on #PIXLS.US on freenode IRC.
