|SUBJECT ||Re: [hangout] Update on LaGuardia demo
I am going to attempt to edit the calendar page that I am running, and that
is getting traffic from the DMCA page. I will add this. But I believe the
dates for the Linux 2 class are wrong. Please check each individual date
listed. Some are weekend, some are during week. Confirm that they are
correct, or fix, and let me know. Thanks.
I saw a question about if an installfest date was set yet. Is it? If so,
can I have details? Thanks.
