Track: General
Date: Tuesday, April 24
Time: 3:35pm - 4:35pm
Location: Ballroom A

This 60 minute lightning rounds discussion will feature a large panel of FOSS advocates and community managers from Fedora, Ubuntu, MySQL, SugarCRM, Red Hat, Eclipse, Zend, and other groups. Each panelist will have a short amount of time to talk about current events affecting their communities, and developments occuring within their own circles.

Later on, the panel will do Q&A with the attendees and there will be an open suggestion session where attendees and panelists will discuss ways to better integrate FOSS communities and collectively benefit from the best practices each community has adopted to deal with the rapidly changing world of open source development.
