FreeBSD Developer Summit: PC-BSD Working Group

6 October 2011 (Thursday), schedule: TBD

Overview

This working group is to help and encourage the cooperation with PC-BSD, a user friendly desktop operating system based on FreeBSD. The goal is to discuss how the two projects could help each other, what the important outstanding issues are, and how to solve them.

If you would like to participate, contact one of the chair persons below and CC devsummit@. You will be then added to this page. Please include a list of things you want to talk about or the areas you are interested in. This helps in planning the session and to bring people together with common interests.

Goals

In particular, we would like to cover the following topics. This is not an exhaustive list and if you feel there is something missing that you want to talk about, contact the session chairs and your topic will be included here. Note that the numbering of the topics does not represent an ordering or importance indication of any kind, but rather a reference to the second table with the "topic of interest" column.
