==> CELF SOLICITING BIDS FOR 2010 CONTRACT WORK <==

 

As part of CELF's open project proposal process, CELF is soliciting bids from interested parties to work on technical projects this year.

 

In December of 2009, CELF requested project proposals from members and the general public, and also authorized their 2010 contractor budget.  28 proposals were collected and posted to the eLinux wiki, and are listed at:

 

http://elinux.org/Project_Proposals_for_2010

 

CELF is now soliciting bids from anyone interested in working on these projects.  If you would like to do contract work for CELF, you may indicate your interest by submitting a bid on one or more of the projects.

 

Bidding instructions are on the following wiki page:

http://elinux.org/CELF_project_bidding_instructions

 

Voting to select the projects for this year will be done by the Architecture Group, shortly, and then the actual project work will begin.

 

 

==> 2010 JAPAN TECHNICAL JAMBOREE SCHEDULE <==

 

32nd:  March 5  (Fri)

33rd:  June 4 (Fri)

34th:  September 3 (Fri) – This Jamboree is scheduled just before The Linux Foundation’s Japan Linux Symposium 2010 (September 27-29)

35th:  December 10 (Fri) – This Jamboree is scheduled just after The Linux Foundation’s Kernel Summit 2010 (November 1-2)

 

All Jamborees listed above will be held at the Nakano Sunplaza in Tokyo.

 

This year we are scheduling the Jamborees so they will be synchronized to the merge windowing term of each Linux kernel release. This way we can include the latest topics of kernel development community works.
