The Kete day is being preceded by a separate meeting with DIA funded projects: Auckland City Libraries, Taranki oTe Reo Trust, HLT and Katipo. That will be at Auckland City Libraries on Monday afternoon.

The Kete Day is designed as an introduction to people who would like to learn more about the Kete project  (including APN partner libraries who have never heard of Kete or never seen it demonstrated), various Kete projects throughout NZ (including DIA funded projects) and how to go about getting a Kete install off the ground.

I have started a framework of a programme for the day, trying to incorporate the suggestions that occur at the bottom of the page. The programme is in fairly good shape now. Feel free to edit it as you think fit.

Please feel free to enter your programme suggestions here:

 1. I'd love people thinking of other Kete projects to share with us what they are planning, any issues / queries they have...

2. A significant part of the day should be dedicated to things that are relevant to those already in the community, such as governance, issues around management of the codebase, and (definitely the most sexy) features that have been added since last meeting or in the works, and input for adding features.

3. Format of future Kete Community Meetings, regularity, cost, what people would like to see included, good places to announce the meetings.

4. Presentation from Paul Sutherland - 2 parts a. the Creative Commons, the APN and Kete b. APN and Kete 

5. The differences / overheads / implications of having many small kete installations, against one big installation (from both a user and technical support standpoint).
