RE: [] RE: EclipseCon memory stickandGanymede M5

Hi Martin,

Those sticks are meant for your personal use to help expedite the set up of
your tutorial.  We don't need to be involved in reviewing how you use them.

stickandGanymede 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?
