+# saluting the cross-distro app installer meeting
+
+I just want to wish luck to the
+**[cross-distribution meeting on applications installers](http://distributions.freedesktop.org/wiki/Meetings/AppInstaller2011)**,
+which is starting today. For some background, check out
+[Vicent](http://www.vuntz.net/journal/)'s nice
+[blog post](http://www.vuntz.net/journal/post/2011/01/18/Cross-distribution-meeting-on-application-installer)
+on the subject.
+
+As far as my memory goes, this is one of the first attempts—if not the first
+one—to get representative of as many distros as possible around the same table
+to design, hack, and discuss a common topic of interest. We don't know yet how
+it will turn out, but the **approach to the meeting** has been a commendable
+one: aim at as much diversity as possible (first gathering people informally to
+get some ballpark dates, then with an announcement sent to the
+[most appropriate place](http://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/distributions)),
+be transparent about the organization, and engage in keeping others informed ex
+post. As they say here in France, «chapeau» for this attempt at *factual*
+**cross-distro collaboration**.
+
+Debian is present at the meeting, represented by Enrico Zini and David
+Kalnischkies. Thanks to them (for being there), to Vincent Untz (for the
+organization), to Novell/SUSE (for sponsoring part of Debian attendees'
+expenses), and to Debian donors (whose
+[donations](http://www.debian.org/donations) have been used to sponsor the
+rest).
