After the long 1.4 development cycle, it would be nice for the Lenya devs and users to meet in real life, match email addresses to faces, talk about Lenya's strengths and weaknesses, socialize, build up community spirit and discuss a roadmap for the future.

Date: Wednesday, July 11 to Friday, July 13 2007

Time: The meeting will start at 10:00 UTC+02:00

Place: University of Zürich; KOL building; Room N 1/2

Originally intended as a developer's meeting, it was decided to extend the invitation to our users as well. Whatever your Lenya experience is, you are welcome to drop in and talk about your success or horror stories, suggest improvements or to ask questions. Note that due to lack of time and manpower, we will probably not be able to provide beginner-level tutorials, but even if you are totally new to Lenya, you should be able to filter some useful information out of all the technobabble :)

Current List of Participants

Sign up here if you can make it to Zürich:

Remote Participants

We will try to have a video stream running during discussions and talks for remote participants. You can contribute back via IRC, we will probably revive #lenya@freenode.net for this purpose. The streams are in the open Ogg Theora format - to watch them, you need a video player like VLC, MPlayer or KMPlayer from KDE. The stream relay is now up at

The stream URL will be http://stackingdwarves.net:8000/lenya-meeting-zurich07.ogg - an example movie is running until the meeting starts on wednesday. Please report problems to the Lenya developers mailing list or directly to nettings at apache dot org.
