Hey guys,

My apologies if you've received this via other channels, but if you
haven't yet registered, if you're thinking about attending the LSB
Workgroup meeting and/or the LF Collaboration Summit, please register at
the registration link ASAP.

We still need to finalize the Agenda, but based on feedback gathered
from the LSB call, what seems to make sense is that LSB workgroup
members are strongly encouraged to attend on the first plenary day of
April 8th, but we won't have any LSB-specific items scheduled for Monday
or Tuesday; we'll probably schedule a half-day "public" meeting that
will cover the public agenda and give time for ISV's and other
non-regular LSB wg attendees to give us feedback for the 4.0 agenda on
Wendesday or Thursday, and have a all-day "Working session" where people
can hack on LSB related items, confer with one another about bug
categorization and/or fix bugs, etc. on the other day.   Friday we'll
have a private all-day working meeting, and then Saturday I plan to have
an all day "team building" day which will probably involve a BBQ and
boating off of Lake Travis.

So that basically means that if you want to attend all of the events for
the LF Collaboration Summit and the LSB workgroup meeting, it would be
best to plan to arrive in Austin on the afternoon/evening of Monday,
April 7th, and fly out on Sunday, April 13th.
