Me joining this mailing list. Brett recommended a mini session at
libreplanet to discuss this.

This was in reference to all the devs/contributors of each distro meet
first to plan the format for FSDCON, topics, etc.,. A meet on IRC first
in a channel called gnu-linux-libre seems logical or we can just meet in
the BLAG channel on Indymedia.

I agree. Perhaps these types of questions from a recent forum post in
BLAG. Some distros
already have these questions answered in your FAQ's.
