[Ksummit-discuss] Devicetree Workshop at Kernel Summit Prague (26 Oct 2017)

Hi folks,

I've flushed out the schedule. It is still a draft, but I've got names
against the topics and put them into a rough order.

If your name is listed below, it means I've asked you to frame the
problem and moderate discussion for that topic. I'm *not* asking you
to present unless the topic is specifically listed as a presentation.
If you want you can have a slide or two, but you must get them to me
by Tuesday evening, 24 October. I want to keep the time fiddling with
projectors to a minimum.

Originally this was intended as a 1/2 day workshop, but given that we
have the room for the full day, I've spread things out to give a bit
more time for hallway track. I can also move things around if need be
to avoid conflicts with the maintainers summit and KVM forum. The
maintenance topics are in the afternoon under the assumption that
there are folks in the maintainers summit who will want to attend. The
tooling and schema topics are in the morning. I've also tried really
hard to preserve the breaks and lunch to give time for hallway

As always, none of this is set in stone. If you have any specific
conflicts or concerns then please say so.
