[OCLUG-Tech] Hack Session for OCLUG live distro

Hack session to advance OCLUG live distro

When: April 29, 2017,  13:30 - 16:30

Where: 18 Spyglass Ridge, Stittsville
       (2 blocks S of Hazeldean on Springbrook,
        Rona is opposite Springbrook.)

RSVP: Please let me know if you are likely to come, even if
      not absolutely certain. I've plenty of space, but need
      to put out chairs etc.

Notes: Please bring slippers or indoor shoes. We
       don't allow bare feet or outdoor footware
       on our dance floor. There'll be a tray or cardboard
       by the door for shoes, and a coat rack downstairs.

       I have decent internet. Also a number of
       different machines, some quite old, some recent,
       to allow for testing. Blank/emptied USBs useful.

OCLUG Wiki material:


Topics to be addressed:
       - developing a live-distro that has a reasonable
         graphical interface (e.g., OpenBox plus some
       - some form of easy remastering to allow the
         distro to be repurposed e.g., DanceBox, or
         interface to allow GIT/SVN and file editing,
         or a some set of personal tools
       - bootup on EFI or legacy
       - script to make transfer to USB easy
       - documentation of the above
       - any other relevant ideas!
