SubjectREVISED AGENDA -- Re: Linux Wireless Mini-Summit -- Ottawa -- July 22, 2008
I revised the agenda based on the feedback from last week.
Most changes are fairly minor, although I moved the vendor/distro
round table after lunch to give us a chance to cover some in-progress
work beforehand.

As I mentioned elsewhere in the thread, I don't think we have enough
time for work sessions on Tuesday. As others have pointed-out, there
is plenty of time for extended discussions during the days at OLS.
So I think we should keep Tuesday for more high-level design and
development process discussions.

Feel free to volunteer to cover any of the listed topics. Further
suggestions to alter or augment the agenda are, of course, still
welcome as well.
