Agenda Ideas (preliminary). We've discussed (on IRC) about organizing the talks this year "horizontally" (i.e. by topic area) instead of "vertically" (i.e. by project). Even so there will still be project specific updates. Please add to or elaborate the ideas here. As the details get firmed up we will populate the program above with specific time blocks.

Free Java Meeting

Let's meet in Brussels

The next meeting of the Free/Libre Open Source Software Java developers will take place in Brussels during [http://www.fosdem.org FOSDEM], February 23 and 24 in Brussels, Belgium.

In the past several years there were two main events around libre java for the GNU/Linux platform. The Fosdem "Escape the Java Trap" event organized by the GNU Classpath community, coordinating technical issues around implementing core libraries, compilers, tools and free runtimes. And "DevJam", a GNU/Linux distro packaging conference organized by Debian, but meant as a cross-distribution coordination meeting to set common guidelines for packaging java programs and libraries.

The goals of the Free Java Meeting will be:

  • Clearing OpenJDK encumbrances
  • Increasing Java Ubiquity: working together across projects and platforms
  • Improve the distro packaging guidelines (filesystem layout, packaging inter-dependencies, browser integration, developer guidelines, etc.) used across GNU/Linux distributions for java libraries and programs.
