Hi folks,

I don't know whether you've heard of this, so I thought I'd forward it just in

Some people here might be interested. If not, apologies for the noise.

Package Management Devroom at FOSDEM ‘18

On Saturday 3rd February FOSDEM will host its first devroom dedicated to the
subject of package management at [ULB](http://www.ulb.ac.be/).


As this is the first time we’re hosting a package management devroom we want
you to bring your own take. We’re open to exploring issues around distribution,
verification, complexity, reproducibility, immutability, versioning, orphaning
and sustaining package managers as an essential part of the open source
ecosystem. Experiences, cautionary tales and ‘best-practice’ type talks are
welcome. We are also considering a panel discussion.


Submissions require a small abstract and a short speaker description and must
be submitted via the Pentabarf system no later than 1st of December 2017.

The suggested duration for a timeslot to apply for is 25 minutes (20 min
presentation + 5 mins questions). The schedule shall be finalized by 15
December 2016.

    you, please indicate within your submission whether you would like to be a
    part of a panel discussion.
