GUM TOPIC: "Managing a Small Open Source Project"
Speakers: Warren Dukes
Host: Beth Lynn Eicher
CoHost: Mark Dalrymple

Do you have a small program you wrote and would like to make it available 
to the world? Or ever got an itch to write some code to solve a problem? 
Or are you just curious how exactly the open source works? I'll be 
presenting my experiences in managing a small open source project, Music 
Player Daemon (http://www.musicpd.org). The topics of discussion will 
include publicizing an open source project, picking a license, building a 
community, supporting users, and working with developers.

* "Managing a Small Open Source Project" talk 11am-Noon
* Geeks Eating Pizza Noon-ish - 1pm
