Lucky number 13? Maybe! Tomorrow "Luminosity" will get its thirteenth installment.
- Why we work together, and why we sometimes don't: In Free software, forking used to be seen as a really bad thing reserved for unfixable situations. These days it happens all the time. Duplication of effort was usually met with "Why?" rather than "Why not?", and typically reserved for the "beginner's application topic" (Was text editors, then irc (or mud!) clients, then media players, ..) Have we forgotten culturally the benefits of working together? Have new priorities shifted the playing field? When does it make sense to I'll try to make the case for less diversity than we have now, or at least a more responsible investment of effort.
- Open Build Service: We'll be looking at one of the coolest tools out there for people building software, images and operating system distributions: Open Build Service. We'll look at how it works, how it can be extended and at some self-hosting options.
- Q&A: If you have a burning question to ask, do so in the comments here or on G+ and I'll do my best to get to it in the show. Or you can ask live on irc ...
You can join live tomorrow on G+ or Youtube at 18:00 UTC, with live chat on irc.freenode.net in #luminosity, or catch the show later on my Youtube channel. See you there!
