[] RE: EclipseCon memory stick andGanymede M5

Hi Bjorn, Janet and all -

Sorry for picking up this mail thread again, but I have another question
in this context:

Being a Tutorial Presenter, I recently got an E-Mail saying

"To help with that problem this year, we are
sending the speakers for each tutorial four
or five 1Gb USB memory sticks."

For DSDP, in order to get a fully functional
environment to code and test a host/target
environment, the users need things like QEMU,
cross compilers, a Linux image, VMWare or
the like.

Such tools are available for free - and everybody
uses them - but they are not under the EPL, so
they cannot be distributed from
servers or Sticks, just like the JVM's. CDT
has had the same issue and come up with Wascana; for DSDP, we're going to discuss this
in a BoF at EclipseCon [1].

So what about the "Tutorial Sticks"? Can we put such stuff on these? My naive guessing
would be yes, because these sticks belong
to the presenter so it's a thing between
presenter and attendees not involving the EMO.

Or am I wrong?
