Since the agenda typically covers less than 1/2 of the available hours
of any day during the FAD, and we always tend to congregate in the
lobby in the evening hacking on stuff anyway, rrix and I added an
optional "late late show" section to the first two nights.
We are going to do some really basic and simple packaging instruction
on the first night that we've termed 'Packaging by and for dummies'
riffing on stickster's Git talk of the same meme. No we won't keep you
up REALLY late - most likely just an hour or two after dinner.

The second night we're actually going to try and do some packaging
(hopefully using the stuff we learned the previous night) and package
reviews for the limesurvey dependencies.
This is of course optional - you are welcome to do your own thing, but
I've noticed a number of people within marketing talking about wanting
to learn packaging, so here's your chance. If you're already a
packager, feel free to jump in and help us teach.
