What do people think of having an Infrastructure-related FAD (Fedora
Activity Day)? Something more along the lines of a hackfest rather

I'm sure buildsystem stuff will get discussed.
Having it in Chicago or the vicinity would be cool since Mike McGrath
and Dennis Gilmore are nearby (and I'm not that far off either). Or
if you really wanted to get crazy we could have it in Des Moines and
I'd be willing to take care of most of the legwork. I might even be
able to get some conference space at $DAYJOB for relatively little
cost (one bonus of this would be better-than-most-hotel wireless and
Timewise I'm thinking a Saturday in February...
Anyway, as long as it's no further from Des Moines than Chicago I'd
make a serious attempt to attend... (It's really sucked that I haven't
been able to get to a FUDCon).
I talked to Mike about this very topic at FUDCon and assured him that
we'd support such a FAD whenever someone is interested in planning
it. This is exactly the kind of thinking that makes sense for FAD --
getting together people within a day's drive to work on the tasks in
which they're regularly participating -- or in which they want to
involve or interest other nearby community members. Huzzah!
