The insurance is restricted for CentOS presenters and people manning the booth.

For every device you bring along and that you want to be covered by their insurance, you must send us the following data:

FOSDEM will only cover the hardware for which they have received the information above *before Mon 19 February*. Please send this information to DagWieers as soon as possible.

Title: RPMforge - Enterprise Linux packaging for CentOS and RHEL

RPMforge is a 3rd party repository of RPM packages that finds it roots in individual packaging projects from FreshRPMS (Matthias Saou), Dag Wieers and Dries Verachtert.

A lot of things happened since the very first RPM packages were made against Red Hat Linux and where RPMforge stands today. The advent of Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the replacement of Red Hat Linux by Fedora Linux, the availability of RHEL clones, Fedora Extras and the present dominance of CentOS changed how 3rd party repositories worked and interfaced with communities.

This presentation will give an historical overview of how RPMforge came to be, where it is today and where we are heading to. For current RPMforge users we will touch the subject on how you can contribute and discuss ways to accelerate development.
