Kicking off planning session planning

Hi all,

So far, the activity on the wiki around the planning sessions has been modest (to say the least).

To kick things off, I'd like to propose some stuff.

First, there's a page in the wiki which people can use to announce sessions, define agendas and invite participants.

I would like to propose 4 "tracks" for the planning sessions - we have 4 big rooms, and they can serve as points-of-contact for people with a zone of interest, and there should be lots of small rooms or spaces available for people to scoot off into their own little groups afterwards. The rooms should be meeting points for people to find the project/session they're interested in.

The 4 tracks I propose are:

* Interoperability - everything to do with making GNOME work better with KDE, OO.o, XFCE, Mozilla - not just a freedesktop session, but primarily. * Developers platform - gtk+, glib, atk, gconf, gnome-print, libgnome: All the infrastructure we share across the desktop. Probably a good place to talk about ABI stability too. * Desktop - the user-visible desktop, planning sessions and brainstorming for application teams goes here. * Infrastructure - Bugzilla, docs, web team, source control, marketing (which is in the schedule already)

The whole afternoon is really one big planning session - Topaz for discussion of major desktop-wide changes, the foundation AGM for organisational brainstorming, and 2 hours 'freeform'.

So far, we haven't really defined what "freeform" means. Consider this a definition.
