I’ve been looking for people to share accommodation with at the upcoming Desktop Summit (comment on this post if you’re in the same position!), and was pointed towards the ds-discuss list, which I wasn’t aware of (and apparently has no posts in its archive). So I thought I’d spread the word.
It appears that if you’ve registered for the desktop summit, you should already be on the ds-announce list, but you have to manually sign up for the ds-discuss list. Don’t forget the #desktopsummit IRC channel as well.
