* Current planning done by SUSE staff

Sonja and Christoph reported the current status of the planning. At the
moment it looks like we will have some 10-12 SUSE people at LinuxTag,
including HR (human resources) folks for people that have questions
about employment by Novell (they will be there only on Thursday and
Friday). Most of the people will only stay for 2-3 days, Thursday
(that's the openSUSE day) will of course be the most crowded one. We are
still waiting for budget approval, which is expected for tomorrow. Our
program is online at The LinuxTag Homepage.

Action Item skh:
* Prepare general and HR specific announcement for the wiki/lists
Action Item Adrian:
* Improve the LinuxTag Page in the wiki
Action Item every speaker at the openSUSE Tag:
* Check that your abstracts and bios are entered and up to date on the
LinuxTag homepage

* Community participation at the booth

Our booth is not in the .org area, but in the "normal" exhibition. Due
to our hybrid status of company/open source project. We will have three
counters:, SUSE Linux, and enterprise products. We have to
man the openSUSE and the SUSE Linux counter completely voluntarily as we
can't pay or sponsor anything.
