X Developers WorldWide:
Are you coming? Let us know!
We need much more participation to make this year's conference a success.
Announcements of this event have been sent out over the past 2 months. The wiki page
listed below has emerging detail of the conference. Our apologies for the difficulties
in finding it while the domain shift for x.org was in process.
Over the next few days before the holiday season takes over, we hope to lign up a critical
mass of attendees and speakers.
The membership of X.org and other interested parties are urgently requested to
respond to this message your intent to attend, aye or nay.
Let's hear from you,
XdevConf 2006 organizer
============ ANNOUNCEMENT! ========
The next X Developer's Conference is scheduled on February 8-10, 2006

to be compatible with planning for other important conferences before

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to:
o Updates on existing R&D
o Input handling
o GL in its various incarnations

=== HackFest and Breakout Sessions ===
Expect ample support for informal breakout sessions, hacking and socializing
during this XDevConf.
At this time, we do not have a limit on the attendance. We still have
a choice of rooms, but we do need to develop a headcount as early as
possible. So, if you have either presented or attended previously,
or even considered attending previously, we would like to receive email
from you, expressing whether you do or do not expect to attend this year.
Looking forward to seeing you at the next X Developer's Conference in
sunny Santa Clara, CA!
