Debian/Etch release party in Melbourne – Australia

We are having a release party on Saturday the 14th of April. We meet at mid-day under the clocks at Flinders Street Station and then go somewhere convenient and not too expensive for lunch.

All welcome.

Update:

The event was moderately successful. There were only six people including me – that was quite a bit smaller than the Debian 10th birthday party we had in Melbourne, but it was still enough to have fun.

Everyone there had a good knowledge of Linux and Debian and many interesting things were discussed. We had lunch at a Japanese stone-grill restaurant – their specialty is serving raw ingredients along with a stone that’s at 400C (or so they claim – I would expect a 400C stone to radiate more heat than I experienced on my previous visit). As it was a warm day we skipped the stone grill and ordered from the lunch menu (which was also a lot cheaper). Some of the guys had never tried Sake or Plum Wine before, they seemed to like it. Strangely the waitress always wanted to deliver alcohol to a 15yo in preference to almost anyone else.

One of the topics of discussion was Linux meetings and the ability to attend them. A point was made that if you are <18yo and rely on your parents’ permission to do things then a meeting that finishes at 9PM isn’t a viable option. It has previously been noted that for people from regional areas an evening meeting is also inconvenient.

Maybe we should have occasional LUG meetings on a Saturday afternoon to cater for the needs of such people?
