I was sure about that, this is why I put NO as default.

Still, it would be nice if we could record some of Oracle presentations.

I agree in general, unfortunately this is the argument that was
difficult for me to make pass on the organisation. On the other end most
of what we say can be used as guides or documentation for the future, so
I can see the benefit of recording.

Anyway, that said, I think it's pretty important to have Oracle present,
so let it be no recording.

I'm sending this text today, let me know if you have further questions.



* Title

OpenJDK Adoption Group Q&A

* Abstract

There's a ton of stuff going on in OpenJDK, projects, repositories, bug
database, experiments. This is a lot of potential fun, but the entrance
barrier for newcomers is extremely high, and it's easy to get lost and
not enjoy the fun anymore. In order to help people wanting to contribute
keep track of this intricate forest of development and find their way
out, the Adoption Group was created

This session is an exchange between few of the hackers directly involved
with the Adoption Group and the public. We will indeed discuss some of
the projects we are currently involved with - like the planned global
hack days for jsonp, jigsaw and tools that use jigsaw and http 2.0 with
language interoperability - but above all we will answer questions the
audience may have in relation to getting involved with OpenJDK, both
from a technical perspective and a social one, so that next year you can
sit together with us helping even more people to jump on the fun!

If you need help organising your next hackday, or you are completely
lost tying to get started with OpenJDK, this is the session for you!

* Recording on audio and/or video
