> "Getting Started with Open Source Development",

This topic kind of interests me a bit. I'm not really ready to commit
to anything but here is my take on it and tell me if this jives with
what you think the conference people are thinking about.

There is a lot of "tribal" knowlege which is necessary to do Open
Source development and some of the issues are quite different than in
the Closed Source world.

General issues:
	Licences 
		 Common licences
		 What people are looking for in a licence.
	Technologies
		CVS 
		automake,autoconf, and configure
		Distributon
			tar.gz
			deb
			rpm
		Documentation
			howto
			man
			FAQ's
			Web
	Marketing
		Announcing the software
		Web presence
	Politics
		Dealing with distributions
	Support
		Email lists
		Handling bugs
			 Bug tracking
			 Patches
