   Presentations/Short Talks:

      1. "Version Control Done Right" (by Andreas Kieckens)

	A brief explanation of what Version control is and why 
	Andreas uses GIT and not another one. Then he'll describe
	a successful GIT branching system in detail and explain 
	why you should use it.

      2. "Debian on the Desktop: A Guide for Ubuntu Refugees"
          (by Travis Cardwell)

	Many desktop environments these days offer premature mobile-
	oriented user interfaces, gluttonous resource utilization, and over-
	minimization.  This talk gives tips for overcoming these issues by setting
	up a modern desktop on Debian 7.  Topics to be covered include the testing
	distribution, backports, multiarch, third-party software installation, and
	alternative window managers.


Other items on the agenda are:
1. Introduction of new members, news about Linux/Open Source,
   general announcements, Q&A
2. Auction (bring any gear that would would like to donate to TLUG) 

All Linux users and supporters of open source code and free software
are invited to attend this Tokyo Linux Users Group (TLUG) meeting.
Membership is open to anyone. There are no membership dues or entrance

After the meeting, we will continue chatting over a few beers.

About TLUG
TLUG is a non-profit, non-political organization established in June
of 1994 to exchange information on the use of Linux and Free Software
Foundation tools. TLUG has an active mailing list, home page, and
regular physical meetings. Discussions are primarily held in English,
but non-English speakers are encouraged to come and participate.
We especially want to encourage Japanese people to attend and will make
efforts to support a bilingual meeting.

TLUG generally hosts technical meetings every odd-numbered month on the
2nd Saturday, and a nomikai (social even at a pub) every even-numbered
month on the 2nd Friday.

The TLUG home page is available at
