MythTV Mini-conference - LCA2009

We are pleased to announce the call for presentations for the first
MythTV conference in Australasia!  The conference will be a one-day 
mini-conference hosted as part of linux.conf.au conference in Hobart,
Tasmania, Australia which will be held in January 2009.  The MythTV
mini-conference will be held on Monday the 19th.

MythTV is a personal video recorder (PVR) for Linux which allows you
to decide what you want to watch; when you want to watch it.  MythTV
has been increasing in popularity since Isaac Richards first started
working on it in 2002.  It is now very usable, and has several dedicated
Linux distributions, as well as several books written about it.

We are looking for presentations that are related to MythTV in some
shape or form.  Some example topics are (but by no means limited to):

  MythTV internals, the new QT interface, up and coming
  plugins, the plugin you're currently working on, how
  Shepherd works, your ultimate MythTV setup, making DTV
  work for you.

There will be several lengths of presentations available:

  5 minute, lightening talks;
  25 minute, half length talks; and
  50 minute, full length talks.

Please submit your presentation to lca09 at etc.gen.nz.  It should include
some information about yourself, a synopsis of your talk and which of 
the above presentation lengths you expect to fit within.
