Now that my plans for the EclipseCon GNOME booth have solidified a
little, I just wanted to run them by this list to get some comments or
I going to get these three posters professionally printed and have them

I might even get them printed on something that won't get damaged in
transit so that I can pass them on to other people running such booths
in the future.
I'd also like to print out a flyer that I can hand out to people at the
conference. I found this one on the Marketing Material page:
but I'd like to have something more colourful. I noticed that the images
on the front page of gnome.org are kinda slick (nice colours and
graphics, simple and to the point slogan: "Power Combined").
Unfortunately, I'm not a graphics whiz and I don't really have time to
make up a little flyer based on those images. If somebody feels like
lending a hand, that would be cool.
As far as the demo DVD goes, I'm going to use kadischi to generate a
live-DVD based on pre Fedora Core 5. The reason I chose Fedora over
Ubuntu is because I work with the Fedora version of Eclipse and I know
that it is working well in Fedora at the moment. The discs will have
GNOME 2.12, but I figured having a stable Eclipse was more important
than the newest GNOME - it is EclipseCon after all :)
In order to get the discs in time and at a reasonable cost, I bought a
bunch of blank DVDs and an inkjet printer that can print on CDs/DVDs.
I'm not sure how well it will work, but I'll post a message to the list
when I'm done.
Anyway, that's my plan. Please let me know if you have any comments or
