<mether> susmit: welcome
<susmit> mether, thanks
<mether> I think most of last week is just people recovering from
Fedora infrastructure being unavailable for sometime
<mether> but we did get a video camera to post video podcasts
<mether> or take interviews when appropriate
<kushal> :)
<mether> susmit: are you going to be attending foss.in?
<susmit> mether, yes
<mether> are you going to be presenting?
<mether> if you want to help organize the event and be the event
owner, let me know
<mether> kushal: did you get livecd-creator built ?
<susmit> why don't someone near bangalore take up? Won't it be
difficult from so much distant?
<kushal> mether, not yet
<mether> susmit: well coordination is just over email
<mether> doesnt matter where you are for the most part
<kushal> mether, need to update keys + bla bla in my personal laptop

<kushal> and you also must be in foss.in list
<susmit> I know this page, I even updated myself :), but is it confirmed?
<susmit> kushal, I forgot, thanks
<mether> Nope. we cant confirm there is a cfp and we propose an agenda
<mether> thats what requires a event owner to organize it
<kushal> mether, cfp is not out yet
<mether> which is what i said
<mether> until there is a cfp
<mether> we cant confirm
<susmit> fine, there should not be much of a problem in taking up the
ownership, provided there be bit assistance :)
<mether> kushal: get the livecd-creator built. we need it in before
the beta release
<mether> of course
<kushal> mether, ok, should be done in next week
<mether> since i am hoping to get it installed by default atleast in
the kde live cd
<mether> it is critical that we follow the release schedule

muktinarrow font packaged this morning...will submit for review soon.
