Re: GNOME Foundation Board Meeting Minutes :: 7/6/07


4) GNOME and KDE Conference

   There has been some discussion about a possible merge of GNOME
   and KDE conferences. This has been discussed at the advisory
   board level, along with the KDE e.v. members list. If there is
   considerable opposition from both sides, then it isn't worth
   exploring further. Jeff mentioned that it's likely to come up
   at DAM4.

   ACTION: Jeff to follow up about a possible GNOME and KDE
           conference merge at DAM4.

Does this mean that your're proposing a new merged KDE/GNOME
conference? Or is this a matter of scheduling GUADEC and aKademy at
the same time and place? Or is this a GUADEC replacement with this
merged conference? This is not clear in the minutes.

I think it would make sense to have both conferences scheduled in way
that it would be easier for us, GNOMErs, to attend both. But I don't
think we should have only one merged KDE/GNOME conference. Even though
we aim to increase the collaboration with KDE, we're still different
projects, with different development and organization aproaches.

My 2 cents,
