Details:
A meeting of the various teams associated with IndLinux will be held at the offices of Red Hat Inc., Pune.

There will be three tracks over the two days of the meeting, with two of these always running in parallel: (a) Localisation track, (b) Documentation track, and (c) Code development track.
