PLUG: Invitation to participate

As has been announced at the last couple of meetings and refernced in posts to PLUG-discuss, we are restarting the planning committee. If you are interested in helping drive PLUG, please join the mailing list. It would be helpful if you can also join the meetings, but that is not required.

PLUG exists only because volunteers work to get things done. This is an open invitation to participate.

As before, the PLUG planning committee is open to anyone who wants to help PLUG. Be prepared to volunteer as it is a working committee.

Thanks to Debian for 18 fantastic years.
