[BALUG-Admin] Chris Dibona @ BALUG (8/19)
Mon Aug 11 11:32:23 PDT 2008
Copying in balug-admin so that you're request will be documented publicly.
To clarify, is the objection to any BALUG event, or just Linux centric
meetings? This particular meeting is about Open Source programs at Google
and not Linux specifically. As the SFOBUG list admin, we are happy to
respect whatever you prefer, just let us know.
