Sorry, I missed your mail. This Saturday afternoon we are doing a
workshop on Ruby on Rails as a continuation of our earlier meetups. We
hope to get more contributors to diapsora from Pune. If you are okay
may be you can take 15-20 minutes to talk about your experience. It
would set the tone for the workshop too.

rights from them; you give them permission to rule, only so long as
they follow the rules: laws and constitution.
