I guess this talk is so much in your department that we don't have much 
to say, other than "cool" ;-)

I don't think there has been any "big" news in the Kallithea world. The 
community is growing and many of us are using it in production so we 
like to keep it stable and scratch our biggest itches.

The biggest "thing" might be what happened elsewhere, with gitorious. can 
perhaps inspire or ignite a discussion.

We saw a number of (presumably) gitorious refugees asking us to change 
the license to AGPL. None of them seemed to be interested in 
contributing, so I really don't see why they should care which open 
source license their software were released under, as long as they had 
the freedom to choose anything from running their own instance to buying 
access to an instance hosted by someone else. Also, I find it 
"interesting" that I and other contributors probably not would have been 
able to use Kallithea in our $dayjob if it had been under AGPL but are 
happy with the GPL license. The relevance of AGPL might however be 
something we should discuss face to face more than a topic that is 
suitable for this talk ;-)
