to the LGM 2009 community pledge drive. LGM is free to attend, so your
support is critical to making this important event a success.
The fourth annual LGM will be held May 6 - 9, 2009 in Montreal, Canada at Ecole
Polytechnique. Donations will be used solely to help cover travel costs for
volunteer developers and presenters.Last year's campaign raised more than
$12,000 dollars from individuals and corporations in the community.
As with last year, pledges can be made online at Pledgie.com. Visit
http://pledgie.com/campaigns/2926 to make your contribution. All donations are
tax deductible for US taxpayers. Large donations from corporations and
individuals may go through the Pledgie campaign or contact LGM directly at
lgm at gnome.org in order to coordinate.
About Libre Graphics Meeting
For four years, the Libre Graphics Meeting has been the premiere conference
for developers, users and supporters of free software graphics applications.
Developers from projects such as GIMP, Inkscape, Blender, Krita, Scribus,
Hugin, the Open Clipart Library, and the Open Font Library gather to work on
interoperability, shared standards, and new ideas. Work at prior LGMs has
pushed the state of the art in important areas such as color management,
cross-application sharing of brushes and other assets, and common formats.
The face-to-face meetings and opportunities for collaboration are important to
developers, but LGM offers plenty for end users as well. Tutorials, talks, and
birds-of-a-feather (BOF) meetings to help free software users get the most out
of their applications fill out the LGM schedule, and demonstrations from
artists showcase what is possible.
