1. Design/Usability (this is a big issue in FOSS, but gets ignored a lot by
2. Things that other FOSS/LUG groups are doing - is anyone doing anything
really worthwhile for the community?
3. Who is doing it right (companies that use and support FOSS) and how to
support them, so that they can keep supporting us. Also - when does 'Doing
it Right' become 'Doing it Wrong'?
4. Working with FOSS people - both voluntarily and for-profit - FOSS is
different, and you need different skills. It's not just about engineers -
you still need designers, writers, QA, support, etc. Even small projects
need these things in some form - how do you get them? Why can't the
developers do it?
