FreeBSD Developer Summit (Warsaw): Vendor Discussions

(Add the exact date and time of your working group here.)

Overview

This working group is being organized to talk specifically about vendor relations with FreeBSD, upstreaming stuff, feature requests, consulting major hardware vendors, etc -- things that are probably most applicable to only FreeBSD consumers. Thus we encourage every vendor who builds her products and/or services on FreeBSD to participate and possibly give a brief presentation on the current status and problems. This helps to address problems together with FreeBSD developers in a cooperative fashion.

Topics

We would like to cover the following topics. This list is far from complete so if you feel there is something missing that you want to talk about, contact the organizers to propose.
