Slides from the meeting can be found at:

You can find a bunch of other presentations at:

Many thanks to all who turned out and contributed to the discussion, 
regardless of whether you helped found the Open Source movement or not.  :)

As an aside - there was some discussion around the scp permissions issue 
that was on the list a week or two ago.  Here is what we found during 
our live experiments:

Scp with the -p option sets the permissions on the destination file the 
same as the source file.

Scp without the -p option sets the permissions on the destination file 
according to the result of the bitwise operation source-perms AND NOT 
remote-umask.  The remote umask is whatever it ends up being based on 
the behavior of the remote sshd, but keep in mind that openssh does end 
up executing your shell before it runs the process to create the file on 
the remote end, and that usually means .bashrc/etc are run.
