I see the little pebble I threw in this pond is still having its waves. I am
overwhelmed by the responses, but I I will try to answer all messages. But,
it is important for me to say that I am really really happy to see so many
enthusiastic people here, and if no one objects too much, I will try to
leverage this momentum and enthusiasm further.

Concrete actions:

*1. Linux party.* I had a discussion with Shahar Dag, the lab Engineer this
morning, and we agreed on running a Linux get together event, with no formal
description and content. The idea is that students and interested users will
come to discuss their needs, experience and concerns with you guys. More
importantly, we will be able to brainstorm further ideas beyond what is
possible in a mailing list. This will not be an "installation party" (I have
never been to one, so I do not really know what this means ;-)). Of course,
people could get tips on installation in this event, etc., but we will not
run formal installation. Zvi Dvir  -- it would ber real nice if you could
run war stories in that event.

I set the date to Thursday, February 19th, at 13:00 in SSDL. Mark your
calendars please. Pizzas and soft drinks will be served. Shaharr will take
care of the publicity in the department.

*2. Installation event. *In addition, we will run an instllation event in
SSDL, right when the semester begins. We may wait for  version 9.04 to come
out, but the plan is to do that on the first Wednesday Noon after the
semester begins. We will talk more about this during the party.

*3. Live CD and Live DOK. *We will proceed with Sorana, to see if we can
arrange that she makes a Live CD and a Live DOK from the lab.

*4. Wiki Updates. *I would be real happy if one or two of you would help us
in updating the SSDL wiki, and placing more information in it. If you are
interested, just say so, and Shahar will open/activate the account, and will
do so.

*5.  Haifa Linux Bulletin Board. *Would you be able to make a small poster
of your events. We can post it in the lab for you.

I am sure I missed a lot of things, but this will make a start.

*Action Items for Each One of You

- *Raise your hand if you will attend the party.
- Raise your hand if you would like to take part in the Wiki updates.
- Raise yourr hand if you would like to make a poster for the bulletin
