My apologies for not replying sooner I've been traveling for a last few
days and I didn't expect any response.  Anyways I *should* be at the
next meeting 1am my time.  Can someone double check the GMT time so I
can be sure its the correct time.

Anyways on a side note I like the wiki page except I don't know where to
sign up for the mailing list.  Also can we add links to other resources.
So that someone who IS interested can at least turn around and look for
further information so we don't get someone asking what I need to
download to start packaging a software. Or how do I submit a package or
how do I write up documentation.  Or if someone has written
documentation yet the formatting is wrong.

I think personally most people are pretty good and that they would be
happy to do research but questions specific to certain instances is
where they would ask questions.  IMO of course.
