Okay! I've got all the old stuff dug out of the Wayback Machine. Files
are now hosted under projects.g.o here:


Please note the directory naming. I'd like to keep this consistent with
the date following the title of conference in all lower case. Even if
there's only one talk, please keep it this way. I can envision Gentoo
talks having the same exact title.

I will update the links to the wiki page at some point this weekend
(check back in a few days):


Feel free to point to me to places I can get other FOSDEM / Mini conf
stuff... Not sure what we're going to do about video. Upload them to our
YouTube account and/or Archive.org for hosting?

Kind regards,
