BSDCan: FreeBSD Developer Summit

May 11, 2011 by · 1 Comment 

I am attending the FreeBSD Developer Summit for the next two days proceeding BSDCan. It is good to see everyone again and wonderful to sit down and talk with them face to face. Simon and I will be getting together and working on some clusteradm@ topics. I am currently in the Documentation Working Group meeting and we have covered many different subjects, but one of interest to me is.. We are talking about converting from SGML to XML for the Handbook and Articles. There are many benefits, such as making digital publishing easier.
