GNOME as default for Desktop

  • We should contact the Debian GNOME team, to offer our support. Let's get them t-shirts too. ACTION: Sri will do this.

  • If ChristianHergert attend he can speak about the developer experience.

  • Can we show a demo of Debian running 3.12? Would need a big TV.
    • Messaging around progress made since 3.4 - summarise release notes. Allan can blog about that. We can use social media to get the word out to a wider audience - maybe try and get Debian community members to retweet.

It would be great if we could bring some GNOME swag to the conference.

It would be nice to have a dinner somewhere with GNOME pepole.
