--------------------------
Speakers:
--------------------------
We currently have three talks lined up for this meeting, I'll post updates
with the full, speaker provided summaries as I get them.

Christian Smith (Micromuse) and Stig Brautaset (Fotango)
Autoconf, Automake and libtool, collectively known as Autotools, provide a
portable platform for project configuration and build management. This
talk will introduce the concepts used within autotools and an example
autotools based project to demonstrate these concepts.

Matthew Bloch (Bytemark)
Virtualisation on Linux and running large numbers of systems.

Ian Pratt (Xen)
A discussion of Xen with a deeper technical focus on certain features.


Note:
Unfortunately Michael Meeks won't be able to speak at this meeting as
previously announced, despite his patience and very generous flexibility
in scheduling, I was unable to accommodate all the speakers on the date of
the event.

--------------------------
After the talks we'll be heading over to the (5 minutes away) Greenman
Pub for drinks and then off for food at a to be decided restaurant.

Thanks for this meeting go to:
* Sean Tohill for providing, and being very flexible with, the venue.
* Michael Meeks for putting up with my rescheduling.
* The speakers for donating their time.
