I fully agree with Jeffry's comments and suggestions. As a
home user of Ubuntu and a non programmer I don't see where I could be
of any use to the group at a global jam event (in fact I believe my
presence would be detrimental to the ongoing work!). If on the other
hand it was structured in such a way that I felt I could be of some use
then, providing no conflict existed with my work schedule, I would be
happy to attend.
