Here is the newest state of the agenda and some remarks:

Main agenda changes

- Modified title of Mike Sweet's presentation on Tuesday morning from
  "Multi-Language PPDs" to "CUPS Driver Development Kit"

- Modified the Tuesday morning session to a "Driver Panel" instead of
  having scheduled 10-minutes presentations

- Added speaker names to the printer testing session on Wednesday,

- Moved Monday morning talks of japanese FSG OP to Tuesday evening phone
  meeting, moved KDE and GNOME into the time which got free by this (no
  working lunch needed any more)

- Changed speaker of OP vector as driver modularization method Tuesday

- Updated Tuesday evening phone conference presentations. All sessions
  which have somehow to do with FSG OP Japan are moved into the phone
  conference now.

- Suggested subjects for breakout sessions

- Added (suggested) moderators for the topics

- Replaced "Report out from breakout sessions" by "Breakout Session

- Fixed AM/PM mess on Tuesday and Wednesday

Participants in Kyoto, Japan

Participants on the Kyoto satellite of the Printing Summit (phone
conference Tuesday Evening):

Mihara (Fuji Xerox Printing Systems), Otani (Axe), Toratani (Canon),
Yamagishi (Turbolinux), Ide (Seiko Epson), Kitayama (Epson Avasys),
Kanjyo (BBR), Maruyama (Ricoh), Owa (Fuji Xerox), Shida (Canon)

Breakout sessions

For the breakout sessions there are two rooms in addition to the plenary
room. The plenary room will be without tables, the extra rooms with tables.

One of the two extra rooms is permanently occupied by the paper

This means that during the breakout sessions we can divide up into two
groups when we let the paper prototyping/usability continue or in three
groups when we interrupt paper prototyping/usability for the two hours
of breakout. In the latter case we could also get KDE/GNOME/app people
into breakouts about FSG/OP, CUPS or so. So I suggest interrupting paper
prototyping/usability during the breakouts. WDYT?

In the agenda below I have made suggestions for breakout sessions based
on the topics of that day including the evening phone conference on
Tuesday, yesterday's FSG OP Printing Architecture telecon, and a
suggestion of Robert Krawitz on the mailing list.

More suggestions for breakout topics are welcome and breakout topics are
also subject to change on today's telecon and Monday's brainstorming

If you are interested in participating in breakout sessions which will
happen in parallel, please tell, so we could reschedule them.

Moderators for the Sessions

I have added first suggestions for the session moderators to the Agenda.
Still missing are moderators for the GhostScript driver modularization
Tuesday in the morning and for the Tuesday evening telecon session.
Suggestions are welcome.

For the breakout rooms we will also need mederators, but lets determine
the topics first.

Today's Telecon and Daylight Saving Time in Europe

If you are calling in from Europe today, please note that Europe has
already switched to Daylight Saving Time (Summer time, Sommerzeit) last
weekend and the US will switch only next weekend. So the telecon is one
hour later for Europeans, at 7pm (19:00).

Still open questions

- Moderator(s) for Tuesday evening phone meeting

- Moderator for GhostScript modulatization Tuesday morning

- Speaker Portland/freedesktop Monday 1:30 pm

- Speaker OpenUsability.org Monday 1:45pm

- Speaker GNOME Monday 2:15pm

- Speakers KDE/GNOME Usability Monday 3:15pm

- Speaker OP vector as driver modularization method Tuesday morning

- Should we let Paul Tykodi give the presentation he has submitted? I
  think up to now we have no ISV presenting.
