[kwlug-disc] Software Freedom Day planning

On Wednesday I got a box of Ubuntu CDs from Darcy for redistribution at 
SFD.  So that's taken care of.

Do we have publicly available contact information for SFD? I see 
Kitchener has a page on the SFD site at 
http://wiki.softwarefreedomday.org/2012/Canada/Kitchener but it doesn't 
seem to link to anything.  The page at http://theworkingcentre.org/sfd 
still redirects to the 2011 SFD report...  Can we get something on the 
KWLUG site too?  Yes, I'll volunteer to do this, but someone has to feed 
me details (times, speakers, agendas, software, swag) and grant me 
access to the SFD site. I've already got a login on the KWLUG site.

I've put SFD on http://watcamp.com/ and arbitrarily set the time from 
10:00am to 3:00pm.  Let me know if that's not correct.
