problem posting to this list

I'm passing this mssg. on for valorie.  There's some technical problem, & she still receives email for this list, but can't post to it.  Hopefully someone can make it so she can post to the list again.
"I was delighted to see the update of the website! Not just the date
for next year, but the speaker slideshow. Really excellent.

However, the IRC channel still has the 'just past' date. Can some
chanop fix that?

People are already talking about next year's meet, which is really cool!

LibreOffice is looking for a few helpers in the Tutorium

Hi all,

I'm organizing a booth for TDF/LibreOffice in the Tutorium and would
love to have a few more helpers on hand.

I'll be bringing some brochures and LibreOffice stickers, plus some
neat information about "The Document Liberation Project" -- a new
project we just launched at The Document Foundation to help provide
Free Software libraries that can read all kinds of old and proprietary
document formats. [1]

If you have mad LibreOffice skills, or are just interested in
introducing people to the awesomeness that is LibreOffice, please let
me know!
