    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.
