According to my previous email, I would like to suggest
26/07/2004 20:00 UTC
as the date of an IRC discussion of the aims, plans and other issues of
(UTC is normal Greenwich time, that does not change with summer/winter.
So in the UK at summer it is UTC+1, in Central Europe at summer it is UTC+2.)
The aims of the discussion are:
-defining the aims and bounding limits of GNUe Packages
-defining the desirable workstyle
-defining what can and should be taken from the old GNUe Packages,
and in what form
-defining a basic roadmap
If the time given is very very bad, please suggest another one.
Otherwise, I expect to see everyone interested.
