[ubuntu-x] Kernel Triage Summit planning

This is an open call for those interested in either Kernel Bug Triage or
improving your kernel subsystem knowledge.

The Ubuntu Kernel Team decided during UDS-M that a Triage summit of
sorts would be a perfect way to help those interested in moving our
kernel bugs forward and, as a side effect, was a great way to do
an introduction and brief overview of key kernel subsystems such as
audio, KMS and graphics, etc.

If you are currently triaging kernel bugs on Launchpad, then this summit
is geared towards you! If you are interested in a basic understanding of
the steps needed to troubleshoot specific subsystem issues, then this is
for you as well. The goal here is to provide interested parties with a
way to improve their knowledge in a hands-on way while helping the
kernel team itself flesh out our wiki documentation and the Kernel bug
triage process as a whole.

This concept was brought about by a great idea Steve Conklin had during
UDS, so when you see him, thank him. :-)

The dates are not yet set, but I'd like to have this before the end of
the cycle, so if you are interested please send me some e-mail
introducing yourself and telling me what particular information you'd
like to see presented or just which subsystem you want to know more
about. This will help me determine the time requirements as well as get
the Subject Matter Experts lined up.

Once I have all the information gathered, we will select several
possible date/time options for the team and the SMEs to work with.
Ideally, I'd like to have this occur on one day, but your input back to
me will enable me to see what we will actually need. so please respond
to this with your interests! :)

I can't wait to get this started!
