Hello everyone,

Last night we had planned to hold an IRC meeting.  Since the IRC meetings are 
a bit difficult to get to (technologically and timewise), we have decided to 
move the bulk of the planning for the Atlanta Linux Fest and future events to 
this mailing list.  I hope that through this process the planning will be 
more open, and that more people will be able to join in on the discussion.

Let's kick it off!

We have set up a Google Doc (now published, see the link below) that has a 
list of thoughts and to-do items up until the event.  It is a working 
document, meaning changes are bound to be made during the planning stages.

For January, there are a couple of to-do items.  Mostly planning, but they are 
important framework items.

1.  Reserve room at IBM
2.  Figure out online registration
3.  Define loose schedule
4.  Determine the theme/target audience
5.  Contact Leslie Hawthorn at Google and ask for a speaker and swag
6.  Contact Fedora, openSUSE, and (maybe) Mandriva
     -  Ask when we need to request people and swag

Any input on any of these topics would be greatly appreciated.  Everyone is 
welcome to join in, and let's make ALF 2009 rock!
