Report from (of) DebConf6

Newsforge have a report about DebConf6: Hot, spicy, and working hard to satisfy Debian users!

This is the kind of peer-to-peer networking that makes open source conferences like DebConf6 worthwhile. It wasn't a teacher/student relationship. It was two hackers sharing knowledge with each other. Perhaps this pair had talked before in IRC or by email, but it looked to me as if this was their first face-to-face meeting, and knowledge was flying back and forth between them at a rate not even the most sophisticated online conference software could have handled.

The knowledge they shared will, no doubt, improve Debian — and by extension will help improve GNU/Linux for everyone, whether they use Debian (or a Debian derivative), SUSE, Fedora, Gentoo, Mandriva, or any other distribution.
