We will be doing an all day Installfest at FOSSCON 2012 - Information above.

We need volunteers and idea for other topics/installs to show during the day.

Without the actual 'tracks' determined yet, I was thinking a track on

1) Core Install

2) Cli only install

Please respond to this thread with your thoughts and volunteer status.

Maybe even set up an image server to do the actual installs and tweak from there.
