Why don't we record it and then offer to send a copy at media cost to
all the engineering colleges?
This needs recording, which means some one has to make the effort of
doing this. CDAC/NCST had shown interest to record this, we need to
pursue this idea. Otherwise, hbcse has the paraphernalia to do the
recording etc. what we need are volunteers to convert the video into
vcd's. Any volunteers? I will give them the lab with non-liniar
editing etc, but they do have to work only in the late evenings.
Several people had recorded ealrier, but they have not made efforts to
give me or any one the copies. Kresit had also done a recording of a
workshop, they must be having the recording too. may be we should do it
again to get professional quality.
Secondly, regarding the live CD to be distributed, in fact all the
programs demonstrated during my workshop are done using a specially
developed CD for schools/colleges under the LIFE project, the CD is
called School Gnoware, which was demonstrated and given to all the
participants. Also another CD containing a wealth of documentation,
called GNU DOC, prepared by warren, is also included. We also have
another live CD called office Gnoware with Indian language support.
Depending on where I do the workshop I give the appropriate live CD.
Thanks to Debian and Knoppix projects, this has become very easy, and
also thanks to my project students who developed the various versions of
the CD with help from Amish Munshi, the expert remastering guy in town.
