    2. Rob (barely) started reading the alan cooper book (cooper takes credit for inventing the persona-driven design thing)

  3. hosting our own popularity-contest server
  4. Install CD: multi-profile or otherwise?
  5. svn repository hosted at svn.freegeek.org ?
  6. how is the meeting time/date (tuesdays, 7pm, -0700) for active participants?
  7. packaging & repository
    1. Vagrant's packaging class in PDX in Nov ? - Who will attend, or help plan?
    2. "mini-dinstall would be most useful for developers making experimental releases and cvs builds, reprepro would be best for standard archive format for our released packages, and our hand-rolled one could be as good as reprepro, but more flexible ... but it would require writing it."
