The "right" person from DSK  is my friend. In fact, he has helped us
in the PLUGMASH event in 2007 by giving some 15 brand new PCs for the
event.

We were trying to arrange a meeting during GNUnify so that many more
people can  interact and exchange ideas and work further on different
applications they require. Due to a heavy schedule, it could not
materalise.

We can now have a common meeting of DSK with PLUG, POCC, PuneTech and
other similar groups so that together we can have some fruitful
association.
There is a big opportunity for various projects and applications on
that hardware platform.

Please let me know your views so that we can further go ahead.

Best regards
