Dinner was good. it was great to "break the ice" so to speak, although there wasn't much ice there to begin with, but mostly to set a tone for the next few days of brain melting meetings. Some good topics flew around the table, like making it easier to do things like OLPC (which led to things like VCS and 'fedora infrastructure in a box' type talk), what makes something "Fedora" and more interestingly what makes something "Fedora 7 Based", the idea of not only a Fedora Standard's base, but also a Fedora Platform definition, and what would make something "Fedora 7 Based". We also talked about things like the GPLing of Java and what that might mean for our java app stack and the future of gcj. Definitely a conversation to have with our java community. We also talked about the future of rawhide, and how we can make it easier for people to do useful testing, and what changes we might make to Anaconda for this, another good topic for more deep discussion in the next couple days.
All in all it was a pretty good and useful dinner, and I'm really excited to dive into it tomorrow. I'm going to try and make sure we don't spend a lot of time on topics that really should be discussed with a different (more open) set of folks and instead concentrate on the problems that are best ours to solve or at least create a punch list for the community to help us solve.
