Now I have a question for you, whether you were at this talk, have
seen a similar one at a different FUDCon, or want to speak up in
general: Are these talks worthwhile to you?
I haven't been to Paris and just listened to two (or was it just one?
can't remember) Fudcon kernel talks from davej years ago. I found them
useful, as they gave some new insights and I learned a thing or two
about how the Fedora's kernel crew worked back then.
But the real reason why I write this mail: I like to thank Fedora's
kernel team and especially Josh for blog entries like the one mentioned
above. Those are IMHO more important than FUDCon talks, as everybody
interested can get information this way -- at a time they want and
without travelling long distances. Further: a text like this can
transfer more information in less time than a talk or a video recording
from a talk (which in the FUDCon Paris case afaik doesn't even exist);
and in a text it's a lot easier to skip details one is not interested in.
In addition: Thanks for the public IRC meetings and the summaries from
them. They give a good insight, too.
I hope this mail encourages you guys to keep on writing blog posts and
meetings summaries (or maybe even do it more often). I know the feedback
and responses to them are rare, which can be frustrating and easily lead
to a "nobody seems to read that stuff, so why do I bother and spend time
on it" attitude (trust me, I know what I'm talking about ;-) ). But be
assured: I read them, and I'm sure many others do, too; so keep up with
it, it helps a lot! :-)
