Distro Summit 2010: extended call for papers

Today, Fabio and I extended the deadline of the call for papers of the upcoming Distro Summit until 18 October 2009. We have already received a number of great proposals, but not enough to complete the schedule. So if you have anything to say on the topic of distributions (such as, but not limited to the various Linux distributions), and especially on cross-distro collaboration, please launch your mailer and compose a message as detailed in the instructions.

Distro Summit will take place as part of LCA 2010 in Wellington, New Zealand. Yes, that is on the Southern Hemisphere, and yes, that is far away from where many of you live, but it's well worth a visit, if you'll take my word for it. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide sponsorship for speakers, so talk to your employer or your distro now and get the ball rolling. You have a little more than a week to get your bids in!

What are you waiting for? This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance: Distro Summit, LCA, and Wellington, all-in-one. It doesn't get much better than that. Let's hear your proposal!

PS: I loved Wellington (and its people) so much that I picked up my very own pet Wellingtonian!
