Just a note to let everyone know that my internet service has been
temporarily disrupted and I'm now having to use my cell phone to
communicate. Thank goodness for cell phones, eh? Too bad I can't install git
and publican in it, though.
I'll continue working on a few things and learning more during this outage
but my replies to lists may be a bit behind.

I am the Wiki Tender for the Fedora Classroom and am trying to come up with
ways to boost class attendance. Would it be ok for me to make a short
announcement in #fedora prior to each class? I only ask because the
Advertising/Marketing position for the classroom is not yet filled.

I will be conducting an introductory workshop on GNU autotools in
#fedora-classroom on 03 May, 2010 at 13:30 UTC. The aim of the
classroom is to get people started on autotoolizing C code. I will use
an example project and will go through the following:
* Downloading the sample application
* Creating files for the application
-> Build programs
-> Install additional files
* Generating scripts
Prerequisites for those wanting to attend this:
* Familiarity with make, gcc
* Ensure that autoconf, automake, gcc, make, etc. are installed on your system.
`yum groupinstall "Development Tools"` ought to get all of it
The session will not be covering autoheader and libtool since:
* The sample I'm using does not need it
* Those concepts are slightly more advanced and may require more time
In other words, the session is for people who have never worked with
