We used a projector, because it's nicer to look at projector if three
people look at the same code. But we only showed a header file, there
were no slides.

It was kdbus.h basically what we showed on the projector, as you find it
in the git repo. You are welcome to look at it as much as you want
there, it's totally 'suitable' for everybody, even for minors!

Jeez. There was no point in doing that... It was a meeting of a few
hackers. Full stop. 

OK, i have enough of this, I am not going to respond to this anymore.

yeah, an i responded every time that there isn't much to see, and that's
even written like that explicitly in README in the repo.
