We already have had an installation workshop, networking,advantages of
OSS, workshop. Will need to take up version control, IRC related stuff
then. (will need to learn version control myself - isn't it that CVS
thing? ;) -any pointers in this regard? )

noh :(  Its always easier if one is spoon-fed. But I do understand a

in this low-key event.
